Description : A World War One Prince Edward Island Highlander, sergeant, uniform tunic / jacket, with four pockets (two breast and two hand pockets), eight brass buttons and an army green belt with brass clip.
Commentaires : The Prince Edward Island Highlanders, also known as the Black Watch or the Royal Highland Regiment, originated formed in the wake of the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion, whereby companies of trustworthy Highlanders were raised from local clans of Campbell's, Grants, Frasers and Munro's. Sic Companies were formed in 1725 and stationed in the Highlands of Scotland and in 1739 King George II made them an official part of the army. The original Highlander Regiment fought in the American Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, the Crimean War, the Boer War, World War One and World War Two. The Black Watch is the oldest highland regiment in Canada. Volunteers have served since the regiment's inception in Montreal on January 31st, 1862 as the 5th Battalion, Volunteer Militia Rifles of Canada. The rise of American military strength during the Civil War concerned Canada. The government authorized formation of militia regiments. Each of six Montreal Scottish chieftains responded by raising an infantry company for the 5th Battalion. Eventually, eight companies were raised for border service. Since then, thousands of Canadian citizens have served in the Black Watch. In addition to Canadian border security, they have fought in the Boer War, WW1, WW2, Korean War; bolstered NATO operations in Europe and UN peacekeeping worldwide; and provided aid-to-the-civil-power, most recently during the Quebec and Eastern Ontario ice storm disaster.
