Hi Timo,
Hope this helps

- Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders

Maj-Gen. Sir James Syme Drew, KBE, CB, DSO, MC

- A and C Squadron, First Hussars

24 Aug. 43 - 15 Aug. 44: Lt-Col. R.J. Colwell, DSO, ED

- Les Fusiliers Mont Royal

Lieutenant-colonel Guindon, 1942-1946

But I am not sure it's right at 100%
Regards from Belgium
