I am carrying out research regarding the Canadian Regiments that were stationed in Britian during WW2. Can someone please advise me: I have found reference to the War Diaries at the National Archives in Kew England but they quote 1st Canadian Scottish & 4th Canadian Scottish are these one and the same or different. Looking on the Web I note that the Canadian Scottish was also known as the Princess Mary's?. The War Diaries for the 1st Canadian Scottish seem to start at Aug 1941 and finish Oct 1945 but nothing for 1944. So far all I can find for the 4th Canadian Scottish is June-Dec 1945 & Jan-Apr 1946.

Help Please.
