The Regimental Museum

As part of its stated aims, the SALH Regiment Foundation currently operates a regimental museum with a view to:

Collect, purchase, receive and obtain, preserve, study and exhibit those objects that will serve to illustrate the story of the South Alberta Light Horse and its predecessor Regiments in Canadian Military History and to issue tax receipts for the appraised value of such objects which are donated.  

Our Mission Statement

To preserve the military heritage of the South Alberta Light Horse (SALH) and its predecessor units, to honour military service, past and present, and to promote a greater understanding of the legacy of SALH service in Medicine Hat and Edmonton.

Vision Statement

To provide an environment for visitors to experience the proud history and traditions of the South Alberta Light Horse through educational programs, tours, exhibits, and research services.

Our museums are operated by SALH Regiment Foundation, a non-profit foundation. Day-to-day operations are carried out by a group of volunteers who work in classifying, cataloguing, and storing the artefacts, or in other tasks related to displays and records.

We are always looking for artifacts to display and include in the Regimental collection. Those that have items they wish to donate are encouraged to contact the curator Mr Wes Krause at the email below.

The Curator's Report

July 2018


The past few months have seen a lot of administrative work being done for the Museum and for the Foundation.  This has involved the Museum Policy Manual and all attached and related forms.  This a work in progress that will continue over the next few months.  Input that has been brought forward from all involved in this process is being reviewed and considered in the eventual final format of the Museum Manual.


The other primary project that has been progressing very well is the consolidation of archival material that has previously been stored in various locations within the Museum footprint.  Two large file cabinets are being used which are nearly filled to capacity with documents.   Sorting of said document will begin shortly in order to methodically arrange them ion a logical timeline format.  The best thing about this project is considerable lack of sawdust and table noise in the Armoury.

The month of August is going to be quite busy with small individual tours being arranged throughout the month.  Have already hosted a short tour and have planned out two more later in the month.  Details of that in the next monthly report.

Respectfully yours

Wes Krause
