Some History: The Voltigeur Regiment is based in Quebec City. Les Voltigeurs de Quebec originated in Quebec City on 7 March 1862 as "The 9th Battalion Volunteer Militia Rifles", of Canada (or "'Voltigeurs de Quebec'"). As an interesting aside, this regiment was the first to be moved across Canada by rail during the 1885 Riel Rebellion. They became the garrison regiment for Fort Calgary.
It was re-designated the 9th Regiment Voltigeurs de Quebec on 8 May 1900, and, following the Great War, renamed "Les Voltigeurs de Quebec" on 29 March 1920. During the Second World War the regiment was designated the "2nd (Reserve) Battalion, Les Voltigeurs de Quebec" on 10 May 1941 and Les Voltigeurs de Quebec (Reserve) on 15 September 1944. After the Second World War it was designated Les Voltigeurs de Quebec (Motor) on 1 April 1946. On 1 September 1954, it was amalgamated with Le Regiment de Quebec (Mitrailleuses) and re-designated Les Voltigeurs de Quebec (Mitrailleuses). It was re-designated Les Voltigeurs de Quebec on 11 April 1958. On 22 February 1965, it was amalgamated with The Royal Rifles of Canada. The two regiments ceased to be amalgamated on 1 November 1966. An interesting history worthy of research!
