February Meeting

Our February Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday 23 February starting at 7:30 pm at the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto (convenient access from the North York subway station).

Recoated PloughboysRichard Feltoe, author of “Redcoated Ploughboys”, a history of the Volunteer Battalion of Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada, 1813-1815, will tell us about the recruitment, training and active service of this fascinating regiment, and introduce us to some of the personalities who were on its muster rolls in the various battles during the War of 1812.

Carrying on the military theme, we’ll close out the meeting with a short presentation from Branch member Ken Godfrey on War and Remembrance: Three Brothers in WW I.

This meeting will mark an exciting new beginning for Toronto Branch too – we will be live-streaming our proceedings for the first time! For instructions on how to connect to our live feed, visit our Live Meeting Stream page.
