Question Wampeau Highlanders

Hi guys - a long shot.

In the smallest room in my house hangs a large photograph with the above title. In case you wonder why I am posting here, certain of the people are shown as 'Wampeau Highlanders of Canada'.

The picture shows a group of about a dozen, most of whom are young officers from several kilted Canadian Regiments (at least from the above I deduce they are Canadian). It was taken in about May 1940 at 169 OTU, then in Farnborough Hampshire UK and shows my father in the rear rank with the decription PSI (he was an instructor). The motto is not fit for family reading but is fortunately in Latin, and the Battle Honours were apparently notable brawls and/or road accidents. A link to a copy is attached.

I have often wondered if any similar pictures adorn small, or larger, rooms across the pond in Canada. Any takers?
