Welcome to The Glens' Association

Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Highlanders' Association is the formal name, but we prefer  to call it The Glens' Association.

We welcome you to this site of The Glens' Association.

The Glens' Association uses the Cornwall Armoury as its rallying place.

The Cornwall Armoury
The Cornwall Armoury

The Cornwall Armoury was constructed in 1938 – 1939. The armoury features Tudor Revival historical style. The main façade has a dominant crenellated frontispiece, centred on the two storey brick and stone façade. It is one of 12 constructed between the First and Second World Wars.

 

The Armoury was recognized as a Federal Heritage Building in 1996.

The Regiment's conversion to a Highland (kilted) unit in 1922 brought with it the authorization to wear the Macdonell of Glengarry tartan. It was the only unit in the Commonwealth to wear that pattern.

 

The Macdonell of Glengarry's Clan Badge is a raven, proper, perched on a rock, azure.

 

The Clan's war cry is "Creag an Fhitich" (The raven's rock).

 

The raven's rock is incorporated into the badge of the Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Highlanders. The raven's rock could also be found in the former logo of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry.

"Up The Glens" is the story of the military heritage of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry written by Lieutenant Colonel W. Boss, CD and published in 1952 with a revised edition completed by Brigadier General W.J. Patterson OMM, CD.

 

This history provides a wealth of information. Lieutenant Colonel Boss provides a record from the earliest days of the settlement of the United Counties through to the Glens role in World War Two. General Patterson brings the history up to 1994 with the record of service provided by young Glens after World War Two.

 

The book contains 33 pages of photographs and maps. Forty appendices provide details on the men and women who served, their contributions, sacrifices, honours and awards.

 

"Up The Glens" is available from the Glens' Kit Shop.

The Cornwall Armoury houses the SD&G Highlanders Regimental Foundation's library - The Lieutenant William G. Tulloch Memorial Library. It was started through a bequest from Lieutenant William Tullock and has grown since then. It is considered to have the best collection of military history in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry. Book sales are frequently held in conjunction with other events taking place in the Armoury.

Also house in the Cornwall Armoury is The SD&G Highlanders' Regimental Museum, another project of the SD&G Highlanders Regimental Foundation. The museum had its beginnings in the late 1940's. It was officially opened on October 27, 1955. A number of former members of the Regiment were involved in developing the museum including Robert Gray (a past officer) and Gerry Gault (a past Regimental Sergeant Major). Today, the museum is under the care of the Chamois Family. The inventory and displays have seen a dramatic change under the leadership of Senior Curator Leon Chamois.
