48th Museum Announcement

We are thrilled to officially launch our new website


Be fascinated and informed about our artifacts and Highlanders from 1891 to today.

  • Explore over 6,000 artifacts
  • Learn about over 7,500 Highlanders who served including all those who died in the service of Canada

With your help this will become one of the best military
museum web sites in the world! (If it isn’t already.

Your ideas and suggestions will make it better.

The museum’s collection of artifacts can be searched and studied. 500 have been photographed with more images being added each day. If you can’t visit the museum in person, take a Google Tour on our website and look at the range and depth of artifacts on display.

Thanks to the 15th Battalion project team, and the museum’s records, we have over 5,700 from WWI and over 1,600 from WW2 – many with photographs and service information. More are being added, including peacetime service since 1891. We have records for all those who died in service with the 48th Highlanders of Canada.

It is our intent to eventually have a record for every Highlander who has served.

Amazing Search Capability

You can search in a variety of ways:
  • just artifacts, just soldiers or search both at the same time.
  • filter by era (applicable time frames), type of artifact,  where displayed in the museum, unit(s) in which the Highlander served, service number, etc. etc. 
  • search for places, events, honours and awards, and almost anything else you can think of.
  • sorry but we can’t help you find your socks.
We eventually will have all of the Falcon magazines (going back to 1949) loaded so the web site will search all of them at the same time.

Special Features

  • Artifacts and Highlanders are linked. You can locate a Highlander and be linked to their medals and artifacts. Or start with an artifact and link to the Highlander who used it.
  • For those killed in service, see details including the action they were in, grave location, artifacts, and photographs.
  • You can easily submit questions, comments, corrections and new information about Highlanders and artifacts.

ON EXERCISE URBAN FALCON 2022, Soldiers of the 48th Highlanders, had their urban ops skills put to the test as they practiced fighting through and clearing subway cars through a subway station with simmunition rounds. In their exercise scenario, their mission was to rescue and secure a hi-jacked train from a well trained enemy. They fought against a simulated enemy force of other infantry Master Corporal’s and Sergeants, who set traps and obstacles in their path to test how they would react. Attached to the regiment in this exercise were a small amount of medics and Intelligence personnel from @25fdamb as well as @2intcoy_2cierens, which enabled soldiers to practice intel gathering/handling as well as dealing with casualties in a realistic manner.

Voici ce qui s'est passé lors de l'exercice Urban Falcon 2022. Les soldats des 48th Highlanders ont vu leurs compétences en opérations urbaines mises à l'épreuve alors qu'ils s'entraînaient à combattre et à dégager les voitures de métro à travers une station de métro avec des balles de vaccination, dans un scénario où leur but était de sauver et de sécuriser un train détourné d'un ennemi bien entraîné. Ils se sont battus contre une force d'opposition de caporal-chef et de sergents, qui ont tendu des pièges et des obstacles sur leur passage. Au régiment dans cet exercice se trouvaient un petit nombre d'infirmiers et de personnel du renseignement de @25fdamb ainsi que de @2intcoy_2cierens, ce qui a permis aux soldats de pratiquer le rassemblement/manipulation de renseignements ainsi que de faire face aux victimes de manière réaliste.

On March 5th and 6th, Soldiers of the 48th Highlanders, with members from @2intcoy_2cierens and @25fdamb, who augmented our soldiers as an opportunity to practice their trade skills under the Tactical-Control of an infantry platoon, run through their “prepare for battle” phase during their simulated mission on Exercise Urban Falcon 2022, in which the soldiers were put under the stress of fighting in close quarters, and learning to maneuver and communicate in an entirely new environment.
