The Scottish Borderers Foundation

purpose

The Scottish Borderers Foundation was incorporated by Letters Patent on 19 April 1999 from the Regimental Trustees agreement and given charitable status on 19 April 1999.

The original Trustees agreement dated 2 January 1929 and six later agreements directed that trustees are appointed for the purpose of administering invested assets which are designated for the use and benefit of the Regiment.

The Foundation was established to:

  1. support and maintain all Scottish regiments of infantry in Essex and Kent counties;
  2. acquire, appraise, catalogue, restore and preserve artifacts and memorabilia that are historically significant to the Regiment;
  3. maintain records, documents and books relating to the history of infantry regiments in Essex and Kent counties.

The Foundation annually distributes a portion of the interest of monies earned from investments to the Regiment based on a request from the Commanding Officer. The Directors establish an Investment Committee that manages the investments for the Foundation. They provide an annual report, and seek advice and approval for investment plans from the Directors.

SEARCHING FAMILY RECORDS

Almost every week we get an inquiry asking for information, photos or military records of past members of the Regiment. This most often concerns veterans of World War II. ALL personal records of members of the Regiment are sent to National Defence Headquarters then on to Library and Archives Canada immediately after release from the Army. Go to the link LIBRARY & ARCHIVES CANADA below or consult the PowerPoint below on how to access military records of family members. Thanks for your cooperation.
