  • Unit history

    In 2016, the Mounted Unit instituted a new naming protocol for PSHs that are welcomed to the Unit. PSHs are now carefully named after important events in Canadian Military history so as to honour the courage and sacrifice of Canadian servicemen and servicewomen who have defended Canada with great courage and honour throughout our history.
