Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders – O’Shea Connections

Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders is a Primary Reserve infantry regiment of the Canadian Army. It is part of 33 Canadian Brigade Group, 4th Canadian Division and is headquartered in Cornwall, Ontario. (from Wikipedia)

Anthony O’Shea and George Pollard of the S, D and G Highlanders in England during World War Two not long before shipping out to France. Both men landed on Juno Beach on D-Day.

This post, just a few weeks after the passing of William A. O’Shea is more of an opportunity to share some cherished family photos as opposed to a history blog.

This is a topic I plan to do more research on in the future for my own interest and curiosity in our O’Shea family history.

My Grandfather, William O’Shea served with the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders during World War 2. He saw action on D-Day.

In later years, my father, William A. O’Shea would join the S, D and G’s as an army cadet (I hope to learn more about those times). He was extremely proud many years later when his own grandson, William O’Shea joined the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders as an army cadet himself.

William O’Sheas 53 years apart. Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders – 1963 and 2019. In the 2019 photo, William is standing in front of the George Pollard Mess in the Cornwall Armoury.

Again, in the future I hope to learn more about my family’s history in the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders. I will post more here at the O’Shea Archives. I am hoping that other members of the family will also share more in this space in the future.
