Lecture about the Royal Montreal Regiment

The Royal Montreal Regiment, formed on August 27, 1914,  is Canada’s first officially bilingual unit. This year it celebrates its 100th anniversary.

Royal Montreal Regiment

Since my father-in-law served in the Royal Montreal Regiment (RMR) during WWII, I should take my husband-who-plays-golf to the Westmount Historical Association’s lecture about the RMR on April 17 at 7:00 p.m.

The Honourary Lieutenant-Colonel Colin Robinson will be the guest lecturer. He will talk about the history of the RMR, from its formation at the outbreak of World War One to current day operations, concentrating on the early years, 1914-1945.

The lecture will be held at the Royal Montreal Regiment, 4625 Ste. Catherine St. West, Montreal. Meet in the armory.

Admission is free for members and $5.00 for non-members at the door. For more information, call 514-989-5510 or 514-932-6688.
