Regimental Centennial Gallery

Since the beginning of the last century with the establishment of 'B" Independent Squadron, Canadian Mounted Rifles in Vernon in 1908, leading to the creation of the British Columbia Horse Regiment in 1911, the ancestral unit of the British Columbia Dragoons, there has been a military presence in the Okanagan. This tradition of military service continues today as active members of the Regiment continue to serve the community here in the Okanagan and in Canada's interest's abroad. They lead a column of troops over 10,000 strong that stretches back to the beginnings of the Regiment... that's how many Okanagan men and women have served in the Regiment as it approaches its centennial.
