From the Hamilton Spectator
The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada have a new commander.
Lieutenant-Colonel Lawrence Hatfield took charge of the regiment in a rainy parade celebration at Bayfront Park Sunday, succeeding Lieutenant-Colonel Gary Sexton.
“I’m very privileged today,” Hatfield said. “Our history is time-honoured, written in battle and blood.”
The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada are a Hamilton-based army reserve unit within 31 Canadian Brigade Group. Formed in 1903, it has 34 battle honours from the First and Second World Wars.
