The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) played a significant role during World War II, contributing to several key operations and battles. Here is an overview of their involvement:

Formation and Early War Years
The Canadian Scottish Regiment, originally formed in 1912, was mobilized for World War II on September 1, 1939. The regiment became part of the 7th Infantry Brigade, which was itself part of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division.

Key Engagements
D-Day and the Normandy Invasion
The Canadian Scottish Regiment was one of the first units to land on Juno Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944. They were tasked with securing the beachhead and advancing inland. Despite facing heavy resistance from German defenses, they managed to secure their objectives, playing a crucial role in the overall success of the Normandy invasion.

The Battle for Caen
Following D-Day, the regiment took part in the intense and protracted Battle for Caen. This involved several operations, including Operations Windsor and Charnwood, aimed at capturing the city of Caen from German forces. The fighting was fierce, and the Canadian Scottish Regiment demonstrated significant resilience and bravery.

The Battle of the Scheldt
In October 1944, the regiment was involved in the Battle of the Scheldt, a critical campaign to clear the Scheldt estuary and open the port of Antwerp to Allied shipping. This operation was essential for ensuring the supply lines for the Allied advance into Germany. The fighting in the flooded and difficult terrain of the Scheldt was extremely challenging, but the regiment played a vital role in securing victory.

The Liberation of the Netherlands
In the final months of the war, the Canadian Scottish Regiment participated in the liberation of the Netherlands, pushing through German defenses and helping to free Dutch cities and towns from occupation. Their efforts were crucial in alleviating the suffering of the Dutch people and ensuring the rapid advance of Allied forces into Germany.
