A Message from the CO:
To all the soldiers and Regimental Family of The Lorne Scots,
From the RSM and myself, we wish you and your families a healthy
and prosperous new year.
As a Regiment, we have lots to look forward to this year:
A new relationship with 1RCR 1xLight Infantry Platoon
A new task 1xInluence Activities Support Element (4/6/7)
2 CMBG on a road to high readiness and needing augmentation
More joint training with the RegF
Access to more developmental training in support of mission
Continued support from the Army Comd to FTSE
This past weekend, The Regiments hockey team, The Wild
Boars, won the Rangers Cup. They won every game in the
tournament, beating out the QOR in the final. We want to continue
to provide you access to these kinds of activities, because
they are important. We will be participating in:
The Army Run
The Iron Warrior
Fergus Highland Games Tug o War
Section Competition (April Exercise) Last years
winners won a range day.
Coming up in March, the Regimental Association will be hosting
the annual Boarspiel. In June, the Colonel Dunn softball tournament.
January 25th, The Pipes and Drums will be hosting the annual
Robbie Burns Night. I can recommend this is a good way to introduce
your family or significant other to the Army and your fellow
The RSM and I will continue to focus on Soldier welfare and
making sure leaders are keeping soldier health and well-being
as their primary focus.
I am also going to reiterate that The Regiment needs soldiers
to do things other than warfighting and training. It remains
our primary focus, but we need soldiers to fill other important
roles, all of which will build your resumes and give you extra
training. If you are DP1 qualified and any of these sound of
interest, then apply through the chain of command:
Cadet Liaison 2 to 4 nights a month. May involve
supporting their weekend training as well.
Kit Shop Staff
Military Tailor Willing to train the right people
to alter and repair uniforms.
Non-Public Funds Clerks Does not require you to
be a clerk by trade.
Public Affairs/Recruiting Our soldiers do lots
of great things, but we dont tell enough people about
In the coming weeks, the Ops staff will be completing the Operation
Plan for the coming training year. If you have an idea about
how or what we train on, I want to hear from you. Pass it up
Thank you again for all your hard work and effort this past
year, you are the reason we are TFLS.
