The History of the Glens' (Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Highlanders') Association

The Introduction to David J. Bercuson’s “The Fighting Canadians – Our Regimental History from New France to Afghanistan” discusses the definition of a regiment. For an infantry unit within the Canadian Defence Forces where the regimental tradition is followed, a regiment is not a military formation. Professor Bercuson identifies “ a regiment as providing soldiers with extend families, giving them a place in the military order of things and building in them strong bonds with other members of those regiments”.

The Glens’ Association aims to provide that extended family to develop a long term bond.

In 1992, The Glens’ Association was revitalized when the unit was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Robert Brooks, CD. The re-born Glens’ Association held its first meeting on April 5, 1992. The first executive, all of whom had long Regimental service, consisted of:

President                           Malcom Macdonald

Vice President                   Henry Kyte

Secretary                            Alfie Lee

Treasurer                            John Hickey

Public Relations                 Michael Lamoy

At the same time, a Regimental newsletter, The Glengarrian, was launched to unite all former Glens in support of the serving members, to foster comradeship, and to encourage interest in other Regimental concerns.
