I assume/hope you mean "pomp" rather than "pompus".
Didn‘t know that Brian Hodgson had "retired" so recently
now he can return to being just the Province of Alberta‘s Sergeant At
Arms.
Some from the East/Central or even within Alburda may wonder why the
"South" Alberta Light Horse has a squadron way up in Edmonton. Well, I‘m
going to tell you anyway!
The South Alberta Regiment, based in Medicine Hat, was mobilized as
Infantry in WW2 and the moblization took place in Edmonton, and two of
the rifle coys were raised in Edmonton. Before reaching England the SAR
was converted to armoured. The SAR was rebadged to the SALH in 1954.
Edmonton‘s armoured unit, the 19th Alberta Dragoons, although it had a
squadron in the field overseas in WW1 was not moblized as such in WW2.
Sadly, the 19D was placed on the Supplementary Order of Battle in early
1965, leaving "Northern" Alberta without an armd unit or sub-unit in the
PRes for the next decade until the SALH transferred B Sqn to Edmonton.

There are some very good reasons why cavalry regiments were converted to
armoured, circa 1940, not just to give them something to do in a
technological era. And it behooves any junior officer to understand
them. I don‘t know any positive connotations to "pompus" and never
having been cavalry/armd, and you are armd, I‘ll "pass" on defending
them, except to say:
a Ya dances with the ones that brung ya.
b Cavalry added ‘tone‘ to an otherwise nasty brawl or some cliche like
that.

Ian,
Cavalry is a state of mind, rather than being tied to equines. That‘s why
Gen. White insisted upon the Armor Branch insignia having a tank superimposed
upon the crossed sabers of Cavalry Branch. Armored Cav was in turn
superseded by the Air Cav, and now, god knows what combination of vehicles
and aircraft carry on the tradition. But we who have worn either the crossed
sabers or tank/sabers, along with our Stetsons and spurs, continue to pay
homage to our mounted predecessors out of a sense of romance and gratitude.
This includes taking on a measure of the arrogance which the French have a
much nicer-sounding term for...elan‘, and a touch of the pompous, as
illustrated by George Armstrong Custer, Jeb Stuart, Lords Cardigan and
Raglan, and Georgie Patton Jr and the III.
Which is why we Yank cavalrymen say, "If you ain‘t Cav, You ain‘t Sh_t!"
Of course, I‘ve always assumed that meant if you are Cav, you are Sh_t...
Respectfully Submitted,
Dave Hall

This general made an interesting observation. It doesn‘t really matter
though does it? Even as an Infanteer I‘ve always admired the dash and elan
of the Cavalry, especially the British. Just read a little on the famous
Polish Winged Hussars. Wow! Now there is panashe!.
