Overview
This is the story of Alberta's senior militia regiment, which celebrates its centennial in 2005. Although it was authorized in 1905, the SALH traces its origins to the 1880s when cavalry units were raised to protect Alberta during the Northwest Rebellion.This fascinating study takes Her Majesty's Cowboys from the 1880s to the 21st century. It describes how the predecessor units of the modern Light Horse fought for their nation in wartime and struggled to stay alive in peacetime.The reader will accompany the Light Horse as they fight in the Rebellion of 1885, South Africa in 1899-1901, the Western Front in the First World War and Northwest Europe in the Second World War. More recently members of the regiment have helped to keep the peace in Afghanistan and the former Yugoslavia.The story of the SALH includes that of the World War II South Alberta Regiment, whose story was told in more detail in SOUTH ALBERTAS (by the same author), described by more than one reviewer as among the best regimental histories ever published.
