Looking to have my Grandfathers grave entered in “OTHER INTERNATIONAL CEMETERIES” He served QOR as Sgt. Died while serving in Germany June 1, 1966, Buried in Werl Germany at the Canadian Military Cemetery. Sgt. L.W. Kirby SB87943
I was a member of the QOR from 1956-1961. I would like to buy a blazer with the QOR badge, plus a tie. Where can I shop for these items?
Moore’s Clothing carries a Hunter Green Blazer (they may have to order it in for you) and the tie and blazer crest can be purchased from the Regimental Kit Shop: https://sites.google.com/view/qorkitshop
I had a Queens own ring made, by a jewelry shop frame our crest.
The photo has gone missing on MGen Pitts page

I have a table lighter that belonged to my father. (He was in QOR for 10 years) It is a suit of armor – says First Battalion Germany 1960-1963. The top of the suit of armor pops open & it used to light from there.
One of my children got hold of it, popping it open & it will close, but won’t stay closed & flips open. I would like to know if there’s some way to close it again.I’d love to be able to display it again.
Thank-you in advance!
I”m afraid we’ve never seen one of those so not sure we can provide any help with the problem.
Sorry if this is not the right place to ask this. Is there any place I could find a place to buy a Queens Own Rifles service ring , I lost one and would like to get new one ,so I can leave to my Grand daughter.
I’m afraid I haven’t been able to track down where you could find one.
Thank you very much for looking.
