The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada Association (Calgary Branch) Commemorating Canada’s 150th Birthday!
The 2nd Battalion Queen’s Own Rifles of Calgary was stationed in Calgary Currie Barracks from 1960-1968.
In 1967, we were deployed to Cypress on a Peacekeeping Mission; that is where the troops celebrated Canada’s 100th Birthday. At that time, we were remembered by some Alberta companies as well as the City of Calgary, with some necessities that were really appreciated, steak and beer.
After 50 years the Association in Calgary is still operating with a membership of 70 members.
In recognition to all our members and to this great country we extend our gratitude!
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA”
