World War 2 Remembered - Loyal Edmonton Regiment - 1944 Q3

The Loyal Edmonton Regiment in Italy

1944 – July to September

The 3rd quarter of 1944 saw The Loyal Edmonton Regiment, along with the rest of the 1st Division, move back to the Adriatic front on the east side of the boot.  Here the Canadian Corps would take part in the breaking of the Gothic Line and the advance north to Rimini and the Edmontons would earn five more battle honours. For more on this read the article in our latest newsletter at the link below.

This is the twenty-first in a series of quarterly newsletters originally recognizing 100th anniversary events of the First World War and 75th anniversary events of the Second World War.  Our emphasis has been on Edmonton’s 49th Battalion in the First World War and The Loyal Edmonton Regiment in the Second World War.  The story of the 49th Battalion came to an end in our 2019-1 edition. However, there are still some stories to be told about some of its members.  As a new feature in our newsletter, we are looking at all our Regimental Commanding Officers, starting with those of the 101st Regiment.  Anyone wishing to be included on our email contact list to received copies of our newsletter should email us at
