WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
Ensign John Davis Camp No. 10 is the first ever Camp to be established outside of the United States. We held our inaugural meeting and received our Charter on the 23rd July, 2016.
We are the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the descendants of the men who fought for the Union during the American Civil War 1861-1865.
As descendants and legal heirs to the Grand Army of the Republic, we are a direct link to those men. We honour them by keeping alive the memory of their service and sacrifice in a way that no other organisation can.
We are brothers in every respect but also have the ability to offer associate memberships in the Camp to those sharing our values and objectives but who do not have a line to an ancestor that fought in the Civil War.
