Administrative history

The 19th Alberta Dragoons were organized in Edmonton on 1 Feb 1908, originally as the 19th Alberta Mounted Rifles. It was renamed as the 19th Alberta Dragoons on 3 Jan 1911. The Dragoons saw service in World War I with the 1st Division, Canadian Corps. It was not deployed overseas in World War II. In 1946 it was amalgamated with the 2nd (Reserve) Battalion, the Edmonton Fusiliers. It was redesignated as the 19th Alberta Dragoons in 1958. But by 1965, it was reduced to nil strength and placed on the supplementary order of battle. In 2006, the 19th Alberta Dragoons were amalgamated with the South Alberta Light Horse and retained that designation.
