Where in the World is UELAC?

“Where in the World is UELAC?” Where in the world are YOU?? With your help, we hope to find out! Take a travel photo of yourself - it would be great if you were wearing UELAC gear, but not mandatory - and we'll feature it online and in an upcoming issue of Loyalist Trails.

First, put yourself in the picture with UELAC Promotional gear. Then, provide a short description of your surroundings - something historical is great, again not obligatory - and send your photo and description to Doug Grant Loyalist.Trails@uelac.org and we'll add you to our UELAC sightings gallery below.

In the meantime, browse our recent submissions below and see if you recognize the people, the places, or both. Click any photo for a larger resolution. Mouse and click the space between the square brackets to reveal the description.

Moose Stash

Where are Marlene Dance (Chilliwack Branch), Lise Bruce (Little Forks Branch), Sgt. Steven Arens, Harvey Smith (Saskatchewan Branch), and Peter Milliken (Kingston Branch)?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ At the UELAC Conference in Moose Jaw, SK, the opening reception was hosted by the Royal Canadian Air Force 15 Wing Moose Jaw at their base. Two airplanes were on display for us to examine more closely with steps and a platform beside each cockpit for a closer look. Some were just as curious about Sergeant Arens with his wonderful 'stache. ]

J'entends le (petit) quelque chose

Where is David Hill Morrison, of the Bridge Annex (Virtual) Branch?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ David is at the Lost Villages Museum located in Ault Park on Fran Laflamme Drive, 3 kilometres east of Long Sault, Ontario, 6 kilometres west of Cornwall. This is the train station for Moulinette, one of 12 villages and hamlets that were lost when the lands were inundated by the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1958. David is in front of the original Moulinette train station, but it is no longer located in Moulinette; it is now on the higher and drier lands of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Counties. David is wearing a Bridge Annex shirt. Bridge Annex is the newest Branch of the UELAC, unique in that it is virtual. He is on the executive of this new branch, whilst also being a member of the Grand River Branch executive. ]

Four Photos For Munchin’ On

Where in the world did Loyalist Trails contributor Stephen Davidson visit a city with two memorials to a Massachusetts Loyalist?

Where in the World? Where in the World? Where in the World? Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Munich, Germany – München to locals – has two memorials to Benjamin Thompson (aka Count Rumford). A Massachusetts Loyalist, Thompson was a scientist and inventor who returned to the US from England late in the war to raise a Loyalist regiment. He then spent his career in England, Germany and France. As a legacy for the USA, he provided funds to create a professorship at Harvard University. To learn more about this fascinating figure, read “Benjamin Thompson, Loyalist Scientist” in the Loyalist Trails archives. ]

Water Babies

Where are Peter Milliken (Kingston Branch), Bob & Grietje McBride (Kawartha Branch), and Carl Stymiest (Vancouver Branch)?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ A highlight of the 2018 UELAC conference in Moose Jaw SK was spending time at the hotel in the spa with its naturally heated mineral baths similar to the ones in Banff, British Columbia, and Bath, England. Here Peter, Bob, Grietje and Carl enjoy the 97°F mineral waters piped in from natural hot springs a mile away. ]

A Well-Red Fellow

Where is Bay of Quinte Branch member Peter Johnson?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Peter is not only the President of Bay of Quinte Branch and Dominion Co-Genealogist (with Angela Johnson), he is also a reenactor with the recreated King's Royal Yorkers. For the Banquet at the UELAC Conference, Peter wore this uniform. He notes: "The uniform is that of a musketman, 2nd Battn. King's Royal Reg't of NY. The 2nd Battn was always clothed in red, but the 1st Battn having been formed earlier started out in green and switched to red. The 2nd Battn officer's uniform of Lt. Jeremiah French, UE, is at the War Museum in Ottawa. It is the only known surviving uniform from this regiment." ]
