Our Unit History

djEarly in the War of 1812, it became apparent that the existing militia system was woefully inadequate for the defense of Upper Canada. To rectify this situation, the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada passed an Act creating the Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada.

Glengarry Light Infantry Garrison Weekend  April 13 – 15 Backus Mill – Port Rowan Ontario

 

Glengarry Light Infantry Garrison Weekend – April 13 – 15  Backus Mill – Port Rowan Ontario


This past weekend we were invited to join the Glengarry Light Infantry at their annual Garrison Weekend .  This year it was held at Backus Mill near Port Rowan.  This weekend gave members of both regiments a chance to work on their line and light drills on realistic terrain.  A bit of rain near the end just added to the realism.  Members of both regiments have supported each other at many events over the years.  Good stories, good food and good friends!  What a great start to the season.


Special thanks to Robin and the Backus Mill Conservation Authority!

Battle of York – April 29, 2012

 

Battle Of York 2012 IMUC

 

This year marked the 199th anniversary of the Battle of York.  Old Fort York hosted several scenarios to mark the occasion. Regular hard working Fort Staff were very busy with informative tours in and around the fort.  The Period Cooking Volunteers had a full house in the officers’ kitchen.  The Royal Veterans, made up of Fort Cadets from the 70s and 80s drilled under the auspices of Kevin Habib.  The Royal Sea Scout Cadets and their gun crew drilled and explained to the public who they were and what they did.  The Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada was also added to the mix. Each year we use the Battle Of York Day as a final shakedown drill to make sure that we are all ready for the start of the War of 1812  re-enactment season.  It was great to see the fort so well historically animated for this anniversary.
