‘Final Round’ marks an end to 37 years of service

Meaford, Ontario — On a brisk October afternoon, Major (Retired) Greg Frank loaded a C3 105 mm Howitzer. It was a task he had completed literally thousands of times over his 37-year career in the Canadian Army Reserve but this would be different: it was the last round he would ever fire.

Our History

33 Signal Regiment traces its origins to October 12th, 1922, the date when the 3rd Battalion, Canadian Corps of Signals was formed. It was redesignated as the 3rd Divisional Signals Regiment in 1926 and was divided into signal companies for the 1st and 2nd Canadian Divisions in the Second World War. Following the war, it became the 3rd Signal Regiment until 1970 when it was transferred to Canadian Forces Communication Command (authorized on 1 April 1965) and redesignated as 703 Communication Regiment. Its mandate was to provide operationally trained communications personnel to support the Regular Force in ongoing peacetime tasks and activities. On 1 June 1976, the unit was renamed 763 (Ottawa) Communication Regiment. The newly formed 76 Communication Group took command of 763 Communication Regiment from 70 Communication Group on 1 April 1977. The Regiment was housed at Wallis House Armoury in Ottawa and its support services were provided by CFB Ottawa. In the summer of 2010, it was renamed 33 Signal Regiment following its transfer to 33 Canadian Brigade Group (CBG).
