Category: Ottawa Troop of Cavalry

Categories: Ottawa, Ontario | Canadian Army | Canadian Militia

Ottawa's independent cavalry troop was formed in 1872. It later came under the patronage of the Princess Louise, Marchioness of Lorne, during her time there as vice-regal consort (1878–80), and the troop was expanded to an independent squadron named the Princess Louise Dragoon Guards. During the Second Boer War, volunteers from the squadron fought with the Imperial forces in South Africa. The squadron was again expanded into a regiment in 1903 as the 5th "Princess Louise Dragoon Guards".
