I'm hoping that someone here may be able to assist me? I am looking for information regarding the Yukon Regiment! It's C.O. (Commanding Officer) was Major Duke Collins, and I am trying to find out where it was based in it's local armories in Whitehorse,Yukon Territories!?

Was there any historical references about them? ie, a Regimental History of them? The only official source that I know of is:

The Regiments & Corps of The Canadian Army. (Volume 1 of the Canadian Army List, circa 1964.)

Years ago, I stumbled across some project of photographic study of Canadian Militia Armouries ie, buildings etc. via the website?

Anybody here know of this project? The photo's were pretty sharp too.

While searching for info, regarding this Canadian arctic unit, found this neat T-shirt design in colour of the unit insignia.
