Administrative history

The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada was organised as Vancouver's first Scottish Militia regiment in 1910 by H.O. Bell-Irving, R.G.E. Leckie and other prominent local men of Scottish descent. The Seaforth Highlanders went overseas in 1914 as part of the 7th. British Columbia Regiment as the 72nd. Battalion C.E.F. In 1920, the title of Regiment was changed to "The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada", which has remained the official designation of the regiment to the present time.
