The songs from the era of the Great War might interest you, and most recently the Toronto Valour Ensemble recorded a choral album called Sacrifice and Solace (which we hope you will find online easily), in the memory of those who served, and paid the supreme sacrifice, and the families they left behind. Lest we forget.

We are trying to update the Timelines on our Regimental Museum website with all deployments of QOR soldiers on operation or exercise outside of Canada EXCEPT reg force battalion deployments to Germany and Cyprus; training in the US; or deployments to Afghanistan up to 2011 (we WOULD like to include completed post 2011 deployments to Afghanistan or operational postings to the US.)
You can send information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for the following information:
– Name and rank at time of deployment (if you would prefer not to have your name on the website, please include it for our records but note this and we will only include rank (e.g. “Corporal deployed to X for operation Y” etc.
– Operation/exercise name, location and purpose (in a few words only)
– Dates of departure and return – preferably day, month, year or at least month, year.
– Names/number of other QOR who participated – or in the case of a larger group, perhaps a more general description such as “platoon sized group” or something similar.
– Any commendations or special recognition awarded
– Any other info you think worth noting (briefly smile emoticon )
Thanks in advance for your help and please share with anyone you think may have a contribution to provide to us!!
P.S. To be clear in case it sounded like we didn’t care, we already include info on Germany, Cyprus and Afghanistan up to 2011. We may collect US training deployments in the future.
