World War 2 Remembered - Loyal Edmonton Regiment - 1945 Q3

The Loyal Edmonton Regiment Returns Home

1945 – July to September

At the beginning of July 1945, The Loyal Edmonton Regiment, Canadian Active Service Force, was stationed in Bilthoven, Holland, a village between Utrecht and Amersfoort. The war in Europe had been over for almost two months and the battalion had been stripped of all their weapons and most of their transport.  Everyone was ready to go home, but it would still be a three month wait.  For more on this read the article in our latest newsletter at the link below.

This is the twenty-fifth 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 Edmonton Regiment/The Loyal Edmonton Regiment in the Second World War.  The story of the 49th Battalion came to an end in our 2019-1 edition. This edition brings to a close the story of the The Loyal Edmonton Regiment in the Second World War.  However, there are still many stories to be told about our regiment, past and present, including our newest series of articles on our regimental commanding officers.  We will also be expanding our focus on the museum itself with articles related to more current events and with stories about some of the interesting artefacts and archival materials in our collection.
