Our Unit History

IMUC was asked to be part of the “Heritage Village” at the City of Barrie’s Canada 150 Celebration – Illuminate Barrie. Two full days of demonstrations, displays and continual interaction with the public culminated in city sponsored fireworks over Kampenfelt Bay. We were glad to come and tell our stories and share our knowledge. We even got along with the Medieval Knights also in attendance! Pictures from the event can be found at;

Battle of Backus Mill, Oct 9 & 10, 2017

Backus Mill 2017

Backus Mill is a perennial favourite of the Incorporated Militia. Once again we were treated royally by our good friends, the Norfolk Militia and the Backus Mill Conservation Authority site and staff. Perfect “wool weather” had been ordered and supplied! The battle scenarios worked very well with the village terrain. Several running skirmishes helped to animate the American and British camps. Some pictures from Backus Mill, 2017 can be found at:

Fort Willow Festival Sept 29 & 30

Willow 2017


One of IMUC's and IMAC's favourite things to do is to engage the public and school groups. Each year the Friends of Fort Willow ask us to come and help out with their school program. On Friday more than 1000 grade 7 & 8 students with parents and teachers came to the fort and engaged with us, The Royal Newfoundland Regiment, the Crew of the Nancy, the Crew of the Revenge, our Loyal Native Allies, the US 22nd, the Canadian Volunteers and period sutlers and artisans! Although it was a little "damp" weather-wise, the enthusiasm of the participants and presenters was not hampered! Kudos to Dave Cockburn, the Township of Springwater and the Friends of Fort Willow for another great historical festival!!
