    The Strathcona's actually sailed on March 16th, 1900 and arrived in South Africa April 10th and returned via England on January 20th, 1901......

    "C" Squadron was made up of:

    Calgary .......................... 1
    Fort Macleod ................... 1
    Maple Creek .................... 1
    Chapleau ........................ 2
    Vernon ........................... 7
    Victoria .......................... 4
    Revelstoke ...................... 10
    Vancouver ...................... 11
    Kamloops ....................... 20
    Nelson ........................... 37
    Fort Steele ..................... 42


    This photo is most likely one troop from "C" Squadron......

    There are a number of photos with regards to the Boer War at the Vancouver Archives, but we have found that a number of them have been miss labeled...... There is one that has a number of people supposedly in a park in Vancouver when they are actually in Toronto......
