Thought this to be of interest of those whom are studying about Canada's role in Russia.

On a different topic, The Royal North West Mounted Police (R.C.M.P.) had served also in Russia, with 'B' Squadron attached to the C.E.F., 1918-1919. I have a collection of postcards of coloured portraits of the history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and one of them a Trooper in Canadian Army clothing ie, Jodhpurs, ammo boots with Calvary harness and buckles w/spurs and wearing a heavy fur coat with muskrat fur pile cap and leather bandoleer across his body while in his right hand, holding upright, a Calvary sword.
