Hastings & Prince Edward Regimental Museum

During their work to find the free-flight test models, the Raise the Arrow team were often met with many wonderful stories from the community relating to the launch site, the test models, the Arrow, Avro, family members who worked on the project, and connections to the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment who trained out of Camp Picton, now Base 31. At the Regimental museum you can find out more about the affectionately known Hasty P's, who fought in every major engagement Canada has been involved in and won more battle honours than any other Canadian regiment in WWII. The regiment made famous by renowned Canadian author Farley Mowat who served with them and wrote about them in two of his works.
