The Fort Garry Horse is an Armoured Reconnaissance unit in the Canadian Army Reserve based at Lieutanant-Colonel Harcus Strachan, VC, MC Armoury (formery named McGregor Armoury) in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
As an Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment, part of 38 Canadian Brigade Group, our role is to provide accurate tactical information on the enemy and ground to the Brigade. To do this we use light, highly mobile vehicles in conjunction with communications and surveillance equipment.
Co-located with us at the Armoury is 31 Engineer Squadron, part of 38 Combat Engineer Regiment. 31 ES was formed within the FGH, and became an independent unit on 14 April 2012. There is a historic connection between the Garrys and Engineers, detailed in the 1942-46 History section.
Look around a while. There is a lot of information about the FGH past and present in these pages.
