 History of the Prince of Wales's Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadians)

The Prince Regent's County of Dublin Regiment

Formed in May 1804 by Frederick John Falkiner MP for co. Dublin 1801-1807 who was authorised to a corps of 1000 persons in Ireland. Seven months afterward with 700 persons, the King granted the title 100th Regiment of Foot and it was established in the British Army in March 1805 with Falkiner as Colonel and a Regimental establishment of one thousand men in ten companies.

The following year the 100th embarked with a strength of 560 for Canada via Isle of Wight and then Gosport. Unfortunately the voyage to Canada was disastrous when eight officers and one hundred and eighty-four men were lost at sea in bad weather. The remains of the Regiment  assembled in Quebec in June 1806 and served in Montreal (1807), Fort George (1809) and Three Rivers (1811) until its return to Quebec in 1812

In 1812 the 100th Foot was granted the title H.R.H. the Prince Regent's County of Dublin Regiment of Foot.
