From Hugh O'Donnell CWO -- Former RSM Camerons of Canada (Our short title)

We're properly titled "The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada". I am a former Regimental Sergeant Major of the Camerons and you can take my word for it. Here's our web site btw:

I only mention it because there is a bit of confusion in many places (including would you believe DND ?) between ourselves and The Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa which has caused some confusion, including families of WW1 and WW2 vets asking the wrong regiment for help in tracing their family member's military history.

Both of the Canadian Cameron regiments have a link to the original Cameron Highlanders:
