Calgary Highlanders Heritage Section

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Unit History/Date Formed    The Calgary Highlanders Heritage Section was created in 1996 out of a desire to help preserve the memory of those who had served in the founders' regiment, The Calgary Highlanders, and the predecessors of that unit. 
Other impressions     The Section has demonstrated its ability to field soldiers in several orders of dress; from 10th Battalion CEF officers in Service Dress and Sam Browne belts, to PPCLI troops from the Korean War.
Regular Events The Section regularly provides Living History displays to Museum of the Regiments functions in the summer.  Regular attendance is also expected at Northwest Historical Association events.
Size of unit The Section has three regular members but has fielded up to a dozen seperate members at various times. 
Recruiting Requirements Prospective members must be 18 years of age.  Possession of a Firearms Acquisition Certificate would be a plus but is not necessary.  Members are expected to acquire their own uniform/equipment/weapon, though loaners are available to new members.
