We had a group of 8th Canadian Hussars (Princess Louises ) NCO’s, instructors and new recruits stop by the 8th Hussars Museum Saturday night March 12th. The focus of the visit was to give the new recruits a history of the 8th Canadian Hussars from 1848 through to present time. We had 4 board members, Scovil Brown, Gary Bowser, Carol Carr and Tom McLaughlan, walk them through various displays representing key points in the Regimental History. They were also given a tour of the museum office and show how we archive documents and establish records and preserve artifacts.

8th Hussar Curling Bonspiel
Thanks to Whitey (Burton) White, Nick (Bill) Nickson and Con (Connell ) Keith, the local Hussars had a great day of curling at the Sussex Golf and Curling Club on Sat 27 Feb 16. Ten teams with former members from as far away as NS attended and some nifty prizes were handed out. This event has been run locally for the last few years and it is well worth attending.
To close out the day, a great meal was prepared thanks to Denise and Don Korth, and it included BBQ steak, baked potatoes, salad and all the fixings. And yes the bar was open so a good time was had by all.
