The Battle of Longwoods 2018 !
All winter we anxiously await our return to Longwwods Conservation Area outside Delaware Ontario! The Royal Scots never fail to set up a very well run annual event. As always we are treated "Royally" by the organizers! Friday evening was a little "breezy" but conditions were perfect for the two battles.

Rise to Rebellion 2018
This was our 11th year assisting the Georgina Pioneer Village with their two day Rise To Rebellion 1837 school program. Again several hundred grade 7 students form York Region and Durham Region participated as Patriots or supporters of The Family Compact!
Rallying speeches, drill, country dancing, the role of women, as well as native and sutler life were covered before participating in the march on Montgomery's Tavern!
Some pictures of both sides from this event can be found at:
On Saturday in the Blue Barracks of Old Fort York IMUC celebrated it's 40th anniversary as an 1812 Re-Enactment Regiment. That is about 20 times longer than the original Incorporated Militia existed!
Guests from On-Gwe-Ho-Way, The Glengarry Light Infantry, The Royal Newfoundland Regiment, The US 22nd, The Norfolk Militia, 2nd York Militia, The Royal Navy, The King's Loyal Sutlers, The Royal Scots, joined IMUC, our own Incorporated Militia Artillery Company and Our Campfollowers at our Annual Mess Dinner.
We were greatly honoured when Hunter and Sable of On-Gwe-Ho-Way presented our Commanding Officer, Ken Murray, with a plaque commemorating 40 years of friendship between our two loyal groups. Chi Miigwech!

Remembrance Day Old Fort York Commons, Nov 11, 2017
Once again the members of IMUC, IMAC and the Campfollowers joined the Fort York staff and volunteers and the Daughters of the Imperial Order of the Empire to commemorate Remembrance Day at Old Fort York. The Fort Ceremony is always well attended by the public. Having the WWII Harvards fly over added to the solemnity of the occasion.

Battle of Ogdensburgh, 2018
Spring must be soon! The Battle of Ogdensburgh, hosted by Forsythe's Rifles is always a promise of a new 1812 season! Members of the Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada again, supported this annual event. From the looks of the pictures we received from a few cell phones and Facebook posts, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves again. It is always good to fall in with the Fensibles, the 49th and the Glens!
