Sergeant Reany, born in Saugeen Township, was with the 18th Battalion, 4th Canadian Machine Gun Company, and was awarded the following medals: The Military Medal; the 1914-15 Star; The British War Medal; and the Victory Medal.

The Bruce County Historical Society, with the assistance of the Bruce County Museum, is embarking on an ambitious project to compile information on the armed forces members and veterans of Bruce County.

We are gathering lists of individuals who are:

Bruce Residents – Killed in Action
Bruce Residents – Served During a Conflict
Bruce Residents – Served in the Forces

This also includes those Bruce County residents who enlisted in jurisdictions other than Bruce County.

Other information we would be interested in:

32nd Bruce Regiment/Battalion
160th Bruce Battalion
97th/98th Anti-Tank Regiments
Cenotaphs and Monuments in Bruce County
Legion Histories

We are also looking for area volunteers who would be willing to gather information for the project.

All information collected will be transferred to the Bruce County Museum for storage so the public can access.

If you would like to volunteer or provide information please contact Dorne Fitzsimmons at Box 51, Tiverton N0G 2T0 or 519-368-7186 or
