In 1745 the Regiment was in Gibraltar and under the command of a Colonel Warburton, while two years later it was serving in Nova Scotia. In 1751 numerical titles were introduced and the Regiment became the 45th. The aggressive actions of the French against the English in Canada resulted in the 45th being called out on active service. It was one of the regiments that won undying fame in storming and capturing from the French the Naval Arsenal of Louisburg, a stronghold that had been heavily and extensively fortified. The 45th Regiment served for twenty years in Canada, and for its gallantry at Louisburg was later awarded the first of the long roll of battle honours that now adorn the Colours. Although not present as a unit, the 45th was represented by its grenadier company in the British force that the gallant Wolfe led up the St. Lawrence River to capture Quebec and thus seal the doom of French rule in Canada.
