I was given my Great Grandfather's WWI beret today. He was in the Scottish Royal Canadian Army 42nd Regiment. This beret is 105 years old.

    That's a tam o' shanter, not a beret. Berets don't have poms nor that band of material flush to the scalp.

    Your grandfather was in a Scottish regiment.

    I believe you mean to say he was in the Royal Highlanders, 42nd Battalion.

    What a nice heirloom. Take good care of it or if you don’t have a proper place for it, donate it to your local war museum or the Canadian War Museum. A lot of my grandfather’s mementos were donated to the latter and were displayed for some time after (if not still on view). I still need to get there.

    I just received my Scottish great-great uncle’s trench watch after it was discovered in a pawn shop. He was part of the CEF (forget the exact regiment) and died in Ypres in 1915.

    Reach out to the BW Museum and Archives in Montreal - they're one of the few units that held on to all the documentation from their WW1 battalions (13th, 42nd and 73rd Bns, CEF). They probably have information, and possibly even photos or personal effects, of your grandfather. These would not have made their way to LAC in Ottawa.

    Cherish that and keep it in your family to remember and pay tribute to. Respect sacrifice your Grandfather gave regardless of the political motivations of the First World War. May God watch over him.

    If at any part you feel you wish to depart or get rid of, make sure you donate it to a local legion. May we never forget the monstrosities that he had to witness and or repeat what they so bravely fought against.

    My great grandfather was Scottish and in the trenches of WW1. I thought he said with the Highlander’s but doesn’t make sense as he was Canadian so maybe I heard wrong as a kid. He told me the Brits always put the colonial forces in front to soak up the shot.

I was clear, I'm not trying to trade CTM for cash, CTM to CTM. They won't do it. So I toss the nickels in the donation bin they usually have there but I don't see why they won't convert it.

    A few years ago before they started using rewards cards to track your CT money, my husband and I would buy all our gas from CT and collect the funny money. We'd save it up until we got to about $50 or so, sort it all out and staple the bills into one dollar stacks so it was easier to count out. The cashiers used to haaaaaaate us when we'd cash in our stash.

    My mom saves up her funny money, too, but has the CT credit card. I think she's got around $500 in CT money. Bought a new Xmas tree with it this year and still had some left over.

    Free hot food, drinks, desserts, heat packs, clothing, scarves, brand new Beanie Babies toys, hygiene kits...all started with just one mom and folks bringing in what they have.

    This park is in the middle of downtown Oshawa, which some of you might know as one of the poorest neighborhoods in Ontario.
