Battle of York 2017

Battle of York 2017

On Sunday April 23 we held our annual Battle of York Field Day. This makes 39 years in a row for IMUC! This year the Glengarry Light Infantry joined in as well to work out the kinks before the re-enacting season officially starts! During the original Battle of York, both the Glennies and IMUC were present to back up the 8th Regiment of Foot who were garrisoned in the fort. A third Canadian regiment, The Royal Newfoundland Regiment, was also present for the original Battle of York. These three fensible regiments, The RNR, The GLI and IMUC had each other’s backs in the early 1800s and today at modern re-enactments! 

We would like to thank the fort staff, for again, including us in their Battle of York Celebrations.
