The Royal Canadian Regiment is one of Canada?s oldest Regular Force military units.In the Boer War, the Toronto company of the 2RCR fought Canada?s first overseas battle at Sunnyside, Cape Colony, on January 1, 1900, defeating a Boer commando unit. The Boers, staring into the muzzles of Canadian and British rifles, surrendered, thus removing the blockage to the first Boer capital, Bloemfontein, Orange Free State. As a result of these efforts in 1901, the regiment's name was changed to "The Royal Canadian Regiment".
In WWI the RCR arrived in France in October 1915 to join the new 3rd Canadian Division forming the 7th Canadian Infantry Brigade. Battle honors included the Somme and Vimy Ridge. In WWII the RCR saw hard training for almost four years. On 10 July 1943, the RCR landed at Pachino as part of the invasion of Sicily and subsequently fought their way up the Italian boot participating in may encounters with the entrenched German army, including the bloody battle of Ortona. They continued in active service until the end of WWII in 1945.
