North Shore Regiment - 3rd Division Champions - Brighton, England - 1942
The North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment is a Canadian army unit raised in New Brunswick, primarily the North Shore counties (thus its name "North Shore Regiment"). The regiment was mobilized shortly after Canada declared war on Nazi Germany in 1939. The North Shore Regiment shipped over to England in July 1941 along with the 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade, which was part of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. Though the regiment was already overseas, companies of men continued to ship overseas throughout 1942 and 1943. First the regiment was stationed in Woodstock, New Brunswick, then Sussex, New Brunswick, as well.
