Organized in 1995, the recreated Queen's Own Rifles of Canada seek to "commemorate
the sacrifices of the men of the regiment from 1939-1945, and to tell the mostly forgotten
story of Canada in World War II."
The unit participates in a variety of living history programs, displays, and tactical
demonstrations at various historic sites.
|| "Membership in the recreated Queen's Own Rifles is open to physically
fit individuals with an interest in the period, and are willing to serve in historically
accurate roles of rifleman or support personnel. Joining us means that you will have
help in getting the proper and best gear and uniforms together. The group has
sources for original and replica uniforms and equipment, as well as blank ammunition.
Our preference is for members who live in the Virginia-Maryland-Pennsylvania area,
as most of our events occur in the mid-Atlantic region"
Specific membership requirements can be found on the website.
