“It is of interest to note that two rectors, the Reverend Canon H. J. Cody DD, LLD and the Reverend Canon F. H. Wilkinson MA DD have been chaplains of the regiment. Canon Cody served for twenty years and so received the Volunteer Decoration. Canon Wilkinson, now the Bishop of Toronto, is also in the true tradition of The Queen’s Own. During World War I, while serving in the ranks he won the Military Medal and two bars to that medal. The regiment felt proud when, during his chaplaincy, he received the Efficiency Decoration from the hands of the then Commanding Officer.” [RHist p133]
