“The history of the Canadian 12th Field Regiment really goes back much further than 1939 since the four Batteries originally included in the regiment had long and distinguished careers in the First World War and as NPAM units. Their achievements amongst the men who first brought fighting honour to Canada provided a fitting background for those who were to follow in their footsteps. “
