Copyright 2013 The Guild of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, All Rights Reserved
The Association was formed in 1974 with Brigadier EAC (Ned) Amy, acting in his capacity as Colonel of the Regiment, serving as the first President and convening the first meeting of the Association in the Armouries of the Royal Canadian Hussars in Montreal on the 26th of October of that year. The Royal Canadian Dragoons Association was granted Letters Patent effective 15 June, 1976, and the Chapters began forming in their regions shortly afterwards. Membership in the Association is through the individual Chapters and for a minimal price, brings with it subscriptions to the Association’s annual newsletter “The Dragoon”, the Regimental annual newsletter, “The Springbok” and an internet email group the “Dragnet”. Individual Chapters also produce annual newsletters so there are many opportunities to keep in touch.
The Association exists for a number of reasons - we help to foster, maintain and promote the traditions, the wellbeing and the esprit de corps of the Regiment; we provide advice, assistance and guidance to the Colonel of the Regiment and we help to ensure the essential purposes of the Regiment are maintained and that the Regimental Family speaks with a common voice on matters of Regimental concern. Equally important, however, is the fact that we look after each other. Because of our regional organization, retired, former or still serving members of the Regiment can always get together with old friends without traveling long distances and help is usually just a phone call away.
President - Mr. JB Price
