Battle Honours of the Canadian Army

Highlighted Battle Honours are approved for emblazonment on the Regimental Guidon. Capitalized Battle Honours indicate the name of a group of battles, actions or engagements. Where common names but separate year dates created a combined battle honour title authorized as a single name for emblazonment, both have been highlighted.
