A brief history of the Fusiliers Mont-Royal
The history of the Fusiliers Mont-Royal, which dates back almost a
century and a half, is closely linked to that of Montreal. The city's oldest
French-speaking regiment, which is still active, recruits its members from
the civilian population. It thus perpetuates a tradition dating back to the
beginning of the French colony, when the citizen was also a soldier. The
unit, a component of the Reserve Force, is thus made up of citizensoldiers. The heroic behaviour of its members and the honours that flow
from it are an intrinsic part of the Canadian military heritage.

Its creation on 18 June 1869
Known at the time of its foundation as the "65th Regiment, Mount-Royal
Rifles", the Regiment became the "Carabiniers Mont-Royal" in 1902; then
in 1931 it acquired its definitive designation "Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal".
In 1875, it acquired a band, still in operation, and adopted "Jockey of
York" as its regimental march. In 1879 the Regiment chose its motto
"Nunquam Retrorsum" meaning "Never Retreat".

From the North West Rebellion
construction of the Arsenal (1855 - 1910)

to

the

In the spring of 1885, the Regiment was mobilized to participate in the
campaign against the North-West Rebellion. Thus, on the other side of
the country, it earned its first battle honour: "La Butte aux Français".
During the Boer War (1899-1902), members of the Regiment were among
the troops fighting in South Africa. In 1910, the Regiment moved from the
Craig Street Drill Hall to the current Armoury.
The Arsenal, now called "Le Manège Militaire des Fusiliers Mont-Royal",
is located at the corner of Henri-Julien Street and Pine Avenue, in the
heart of Montreal. Its construction was the result of a public subscription
launched by its then Commander, Lieutenant-Colonel and future
Brigadier-General Alfred E.D. Labelle, and its first Honorary Colonel,
financier Sir Rodolphe Forget.

The armoury, which has since been declared a heritage building, is one of
the few buildings not wholly owned by the Ministry of Defence. The
Association des Fusiliers Mont-Royal, a non-profit association, is
responsible for preserving its historical character.

The First World War (1914-1918)
At the beginning of the Great War in September 1914, the Regiment was
not mobilized. It was mobilized in September 1916 and became the 150th
Mount Royal Rifle Battalion. Shortly after its mobilization, it will embark
for Great Britain. The period 1914-1916 was very busy as the Regiment
provided reinforcements for several battalions including the 14th, 69th,
150th, 163rd, 178th and especially the famous 22nd French Canadian
Battalion, a unit that prefigured the regiment of the same name.
Colonel Arthur Migneault, the regimental physician of the 65th, was
responsible for setting up the 22nd and 150th Battalions, for which he
himself paid the costs of their formation. It should be noted that 75% of
the strength of the 22nd Battalion came from the ranks of the Carabiniers
Mont-Royal, which allowed Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal to display on its flags
the honours earned by the valiant combatants of the 22nd Battalion.
The battle honors are:

Ypres 1915-1917, Festubert 1915, Somme 1916, Hill 70, Arras 1917-1918,
Amiens, Hinderburg Line and Pursuit to Mons.
The Fusiliers Mont-Royal can therefore be proud to be one of the
founding units of the only French-speaking infantry unit of the Regular
Force, the Royal 22e Régiment.

A brief history of the Fusiliers Mont-Royal
The Second World War (1939-1945)
During the Second World War, the Fusiliers Mont-Royal made an
exceptional contribution to the Canadian war effort. Mobilized at the
beginning of the conflict, they left Canada for Iceland under the
command of Lieutenant-Colonel Paul Grenier. After three months in
Iceland, the Regiment arrived in England at the end of October 1940 and
helped organize the defence of southern England against any threat of
invasion.
Chosen to be part of OPERATION JUBILEE, the Regiment, under the
command of Lieutenant-Colonel Dollard Ménard, took part, on August
19, in this ambitious raid aimed at the German defences of Dieppe. In
only a few hours, this bloody engagement almost completely decimated
the Regiment. Many soldiers were killed, wounded or taken prisoner for
more than three years. Although the raid was a failure, our soldiers
demonstrated legendary heroism.
Reorganized in September 1942, the Regiment resumed training. Under
the command of Guy Gauvreau, Paul Sauvé and Jacques Dextraze, the
unit made its way from Normandy to Germany with uncommon spirit.
Two years after the controversial Dieppe Raid, the Regiment returned to
the European continent to join the Allied beachhead in Normandy.
Our riflemen were therefore called to fight in the Caen area. In August
1944, they took part in the push leading to the capture of Falaise and the
encirclement of the German army. Pursuing the retreating enemy, the
Fusiliers crossed France through Dieppe where they were welcomed with
great fanfare. They reached Belgium and fought in front of Dunkirk. In
their rush, they crossed Holland and the Rhine to Nazi Germany where
fierce fighting awaited them in the forests of Moyland and Hochwald.
They became part of the occupying forces in Berlin.
For their bravery in World War II, Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal Regiment was
awarded the following battle honours:

Dieppe, Bourguebus Ridge, St-André-sur-Orne, Verrières-Tilly-Campagne
Ridge, Falaise, Falaise Road, La Laison, Forêt de la Lande, Dunkerke 1944,
Antwerp-Thurnhout Canal, The Scheldt, Woensdrecht, South Beveland,

Korea, the Cold War and overseas missions (1946 present)
After the Second World War, Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal regained its status
as a Reserve Force unit. In the early 1950s, during the Korean War, a
former Commander of Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal, Lieutenant-Colonel
Jacques Dextraze, was given command of the 2nd Battalion of the Royal
22e Régiment. This battalion has 30% of former Fusiliers who answered
the call of their former commander. This battalion was part of the 25th
Canadian Brigade and joined the United Nations troops in Korea. At the
same time, the Regiment provided reinforcements to serve in Germany
with the 27th Brigade and even during the Cold War.
In its more recent history, dozens of members of the Fusiliers MontRoyal have participated in various UN and NATO operations: in Cyprus,
the Golan Heights, the former Yugoslavia, Haiti, Sudan and more recently
in Afghanistan. Within the framework of domestic operations, the
Regiment served during the October Crisis (1970), the Ice Storm (1998)
and during the floods of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (2011).
In conclusion, the men and women of the Fusiliers Mont-Royal actively
participate in military training in Canada and abroad. More than that, they
perform their duty as citizen-soldiers with the same professionalism and
courage that have made their mark.

NOUS SOMMES LES FUSILIERS MONT-ROYAL
(Lyrics to the regimental song)
Nous sommes les Fusiliers du Mont-Royal, (bis)
Nous nous couchons tard et levons très matin, (bis)
Quand l’Padré nous embête, on lui colle un bouchon,
Voilà ce qui est bon, ce qui est bon,
Ce qui est bon, bon, bon, bon,
Et voilà la vie, la vie, la vie, la vie chérie, Ah ! Ah !
Et voilà la vie que les Fusiliers font.

Refrain
Pour notre dîner de bons petits oiseaux, (bis)
Que l’on nomme cailles, bécasses ou perdreaux,(bis)
Et le gentil cuistot nous apporte lejambon,
