St. Paul's Cathedral is the Garrison Church of the 4th Battalion of The Royal Canadian Regiment (4RCR), where we hold special services for current and retired members. The Cathedral houses commemorative information of those who fell at various battles; one such monument commemorates the men of His Majesty's 23rd Regiment who perished at the Battle of Alma in the Crimean War in 1854.  A memorial book on permanent display tells the stories of parishioners who fell in the First and Second World Wars.

We are the caretakers of the Military Colours of several former London regiments:

  • 7th Battalion Fusiliers (laid up 1901)
  • 7th Regimental Fusiliers (laid up 1959)
  • 26th Bn Middlesex Light Infantry (laid up 1903)
  • 1st Canadian Infantry Bn, CEF
  • 18th Canadian Infantry Bn, CEF
  • 33rd Canadian Infantry Bc, CEF
  • 142nd Canadian Infantry Bn, CEF (all laid up 1919)
  • 3rd Battalion RCR (Militia) (laid up 1970), and
  • 4th Battalion, The RCR (Reserve) (laid up 2008)

These Colours are laid up in the church, where they are deeply honoured.

With the repairs to the roof we will be able to continue to preserve our military history that is currently accessible to all within the shelter of St. Paul’s roof.
