Who We Are

The Lorne Scots is an infantry regiment with companies in Brampton, Georgetown and Oakville.

As the Army’s primary war-fighters and the core of the combat arms team, infantry soldiers are responsible for closing with and destroying the enemy. Supported by the artillery, regiments of armour and the combat engineers, infantry soldiers are capable of operating anywhere in the world in any environment - arctic tundra, mountains, jungle or desert - and in any combination of arms, including airmobile and amphibious operations.

Our History

The Lorne Scots have been an established institution in Peel, Dufferin and Halton Counties for almost 150 years. The Regiment's origin is traced to the 20th Halton and 36th Peel Battalions of Infantry, both raised in September 1866.

Both units were Regiments of the Line. However, their Scottish heritage was sown with the Marquis of Lornes' visit to the 20th Halton Battalion in 1879. They formed a pipe band in 1881 and started wearing tartan trews and diced glengarries. The 20th Halton Rifles became the 20th Halton Battalion, Lorne Rifles. Many of today's regimental traditions date back to this historic visit.
