History:

The 19th Edmonton Fusiliers originated in Edmonton, Alberta on 1 February 1908, when the 19th Alberta Mounted Rifles were authorized to be formed. They were re-designated as the 19th Alberta Dragoons on 3 January 1911. During the interwar period, on the 16th of February 1936, they were amalgamated with the Alberta Mounted Rifles and were once again re-designated the 19th (Reserve) Alberta Dragoons on 7 November 1940. After WWII, on the 1st of April 1946, they were amalgamated with the 2nd (Reserve) Battalion, Edmonton Fusiliers, and re-designated as the 19th (Alberta) Armoured Car Regiment, RCAC. Again, in 1949 they were re-designated the 19th Alberta Armoured Car Regiment in February, the 19th Alberta Dragoons (19th Armoured Car Regiment) on the 1st of November 1954 and the 19th Alberta Dragoons on the 19th of May 1958. In 2006 the regiment was reduced to nil strength and transferred to the Supplementary Order of Battle , the 19th Alberta Dragoons were amalgamated with the South Alberta Light Horse, which retained that designation. The Regiment perpetuated the 3rd Regiment, Canadian Mounted Rifles, CEF, the 9th Battalion, CEF, 66th Battalion (Edmonton Guards), CEF, 138th Battalion (Edmonton, Alberta), CEF, and 202nd Battalion (Sportsmans), CEF.
