The Fort Henry Retreat Ceremonial
In 1963, Discuss Records produced an album for the Ontario – St. Lawrence Development Commission called The Fort Henry Retreat Ceremonial. It was recorded live at Fort Henry “exactly as performed there since 1812”.
The album includes the audio of a complete performance by the Fort Henry Guard, including the Drums, Drill Squad, and Artillery. The two videos below contain the audio from side 1 and side 2.
Thanks to former Guard Richard Jolliffe, FHG 551, for donating the album to the Guard Club, and to archivist Dan Rose for making a digital copy.
