With the outbreak of the First World War, the 78th Pictou Regiment (Highlanders) raised volunteers for
the overseas battalions of the CEF. Battle honors were ... Ypres, Festubert, Mount Sorel, Somme, and Amiens. The
regiment perpetuated the 17th & 246th Battalions C.E.F. During the Second World War, the
Pictou Highlanders were active in a defensive role. Units of the Regiment were raised for local protective duty on September 1, 1939. Full mobilization occurred on January 1, 1941. They went to
Newfoundland for coastal defense duties from March until August 1943. In September of that year, one company was sent to Nassau, Bahamas where it performed garrison duty until March 1946. A
second company, the "Special Infantry Company (Pictou Highlanders)" was mobilized on September 10, 1942 for service in Bermuda and served from November 12, 1942 to April 1, 1946. Both the
active battalion and the Special Infantry Company were disbanded on April 30, 1946. During the life of the active units, a 2nd Battalion also served in Canada in the Reserve Army.
In 1954, as a result of the Kennedy Report on the Reserve Army, this regiment was amalgamated with The North Nova Scotia Highlanders to form the 1st Battalion of The Nova Scotia Highlanders with The Cape Breton
Highlanders forming the 2nd Battalion. The Pictou Highlanders were allied to the Seaforth Highlanders and were kitted as Seaforth's but kept their regimental badges and the Bugle cords.
