The Princess Louise Fusiliers. This infantry regiment traces its local roots as a Halifax unit of Militia back to June 18, 1798 when Sir Edward Cornwallis formed a local Militia under his own command. On November 5, 1869, the regiment was named the 66th The Halifax Battalion of Infantry. On November 14, 1879, the regiment was once again renamed, this time to the 66th Battalion 'Princess Louise Fusiliers', named for Princess Louise who was the wife of the Marquess de Lorne, who was Governor General at the time. It was shortly after this point in which the regiment received its first test in the field, when they helped suppress the Northwest Rebellion of 1885. The regiment holds five battle honours of the WWI. In May 1915 the regiment was renamed to its current name, the Princess Louise Fusiliers. The onset of WWII saw more action for the Fusiliers, when they were sent to France to help defeat Nazi Germany and her allies. The regiment fielded two machine gun companies during the war, and afterwards reverted back to a light infantry unit.
