The Royal New Brunswick Regiment (R NB Regt) is an infantry battalion with its headquarters in Fredericton, NB. It has three companies, A Company located in Edmundston, B Company and Battalion Headquarters Company located in Fredericton, and a platoon, located in Saint John. The roots of the Regiment predate Canada and even predate New Brunswick. October 11th, 1770 is the date that the Sunbury County Militia was authorized in Sunbury County Nova Scotia (what is now all of western New Brunswick). October 11th, 1770 is the earliest date that any antecedent unit of the Royal New Brunswick Regiment was formed. This date is important in the Regiment’s heritage and is recognized as the “Regimental Birthday”. By 1787 other units of the New Brunswick Militia were formed including the York County Militia. In 1793 a full-time unit was raised, the New Brunswick Provincials, also known as the King’s New Brunswick Regiment. In 1803 another full-time unit was raised known as the New Brunswick Fencibles. This unit was later raised in status to become a regular regiment of the line of the British Army known as the 104th (New Brunswick) Regiment of Foot. This unit served throughout the War of 1812. By the year 1834, the Militia of Carleton and York Counties was comprised of five battalions; one each at Wicklow, Woodstock, Kingsclear, Douglas and Fredericton. In 1839 units of the New Brunswick Militia assisted regular British troops the preparations to defend the province during what became known as, the bloodless, Aroostook War. In 1866 units of the New Brunswick Militia were deployed along the province’s border with the United States to counter the threat of the Fenian Raids. Confederation in 1867 brought an end to the New Brunswick Militia and a start to the new Canadian Militia. Ninety-nine years after the Sunbury County Militia was authorized the Carleton Light Infantry was authorized on September 10th, 1869 as part of the Canadian Militia. By the 1930’s the Carleton Light Infantry would be amalgamated with the York Regiment to form the Carleton and York Regiment. During the South African War of 1899 to 1902 many soldiers from New Brunswick units volunteered to serve with 2nd (Special Service) Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment of Infantry. During the First World War New Brunswick raised many units but only one was kept together to fight as a unit at the front, the 26th Infantry Battalion. New Brunswick’s “Fighting 26th” is one of the many units of the Great War that is perpetuated by today’s Royal New Brunswick Regiment. During the Second World War units that are perpetuated by the Royal New Brunswick Regiment answered the call to serve, including, the New Brunswick Rangers, the Saint John Fusiliers, and of course, the Carleton and York Regiment. In 1954, the Carleton and York Regiment and the New Brunswick Scottish were amalgamated to form the First Battalion, The New Brunswick Regiment (Carleton and York), a designation to which the prefix "Royal" was added in 1956. The regiment today still preserves the ideals of the colonial citizen-soldier and is the product of 250 years of re-organizations, re-designations, wars, alarms, hard work, bravery and loyalty. It is the focus of the affections of all those that served in it, it is a repository of tradition, and is a living memorial to those of its members who died for higher ideals in wars throughout the world. The Regiment is a huge extended family of those who serve, those who have served and those who wish it well.
