Remember Newsletters

This is the twenty-sixth in a series of quarterly newsletters originally recognizing 100th anniversary events of the First World War and 75th anniversary events of the Second World War.  Our emphasis has been on Edmonton’s 49th Battalion in the First World War and The Edmonton Regiment/The Loyal Edmonton Regiment in the Second World War.  The story of the 49th Battalion came to an end in our 2019-1 edition. The story of the The Loyal Edmonton Regiment in the Second World War came to an end with our last edition (2020-3). 

Having reached this point, we will need to change our emphasis from, but certainly not ignoring, the two major wars.  There are still many stories to be told about our regiment, past and present, including our newest series of articles on our regimental commanding officers.  We will also expand our focus on the museum itself with articles related to more current events and with stories about some of the interesting artefacts and archival materials in our collection.

In this issue we highlight the service of Lt. Col. George Waters MacLeod, DSO, 49th Battalion, and Captain Isaac John Mooney, MC, and his link to the Yukon Field Force and the 49th Battalion. For more on this read the article in our latest newsletter at the link below.
