    There's not much out there on this regiment. I'm looking for something on them during WW2. I will eventually be able to piece something together via home defence Bde and Div digital war diaries. I have some general and post-war info on the regiment, but nothing more detailed about their WW2 service. Perhaps nothing exists? Their war diary is still paperbound at the Archives. Maybe my only option is to get copies of that?

    Sorry, I meant the Irish Fusiliers of Canada, both the 1st and 3rd Battalions. Start a conversation.

    I will be at the archives next month and could maybe photograph a bit for you.
