"Created as an infantry school corps to train the Militia, The Royal Canadian Regiment quickly grew to serve the national interest at home and abroad. From it first operational mission in Canada's ruggest Northwest to assist in quelling the Riel Rebellion to the harsh veldt of South Africa to help defeat the Boers, Canada's oldest permanent force infantry regiment produced a legacy of courage and professionalism. This proud history was continued in the furnace of both world wars in Europe and shortly thereafter in Korea. What becomes evident is that in its first 70 turbulent years of existence, The Royal Canadian Regiment established a heritage of honour and service to Canada, paid for in the blood, bravery, and tenacity of its members."
