History of Toronto and County of York in Ontario
Part IV: Toronto: Military Organizations

A word may be said here as to the volunteer military organizations which have their headquarters in Toronto. Foremost among these is the historical Queen's Own, to whose experiences at Ridgeway reference has already more than once been made, and whose share in that unfortunate business has forever endeared them to their fellow-citizens. The Tenth Royal Grenadiers, since their reorganization two years ago, are a magnificent regiment, and at the time of their annual inspection last November, were the subject of most gratifying criticisms by the Major-General in command of the forces. Other military bodies arc the Governor-General's Body Guard—glittering warriors in scarlet coats and burnished helmets; the Toronto Field Battery, the Toronto Garrison Artillery, the Ontario Rifle Association, and the recently established School of Infantry.
