Understanding Infantry

The preparation for, and engagement in, combat require constant learning. Similarly, as a website can only skim the surface of a Regiment’s story, this page is dedicated to providing information, resources and links to help you learn more about The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) and the role of infantry.

The following two diagrams will help the non-military reader understand the historic organization and rank structure of the Canadian army with a focus on the infantry.
