RHLI AWARDED 44TH BATTLE HONOUR "AFGHANISTAN" THEATRE HONOUR ANNOUNCED BY PRIME MINISTER
The RHLI have been awarded the national honour "Afghanistan" for our commitment to Canada's longest and most recent conflict. The Prime Minister made the announcement during the "National Day of Honour" ceremonies on Parliament Hill on May 9th, 2014, and the list was released the next day.
The honour is a "theatre" honour, and not for any one particular battle. 63 Canadian Army units (including our sister regiment, the Argylls) were awarded the distinction, along with the Canadian Special Operations Regiment, 4 Royal Canadian Air Force squadrons, and 15 Royal Canadian Navy ships.
The award was based on specific criteria:
"Units of the Canadian Army will be granted the Theatre Honour "Afghanistan" if their cumulative contribution of personnel reached a minimum level of 20 per cent of the effective strength of the originating unit in the geographical area of Afghanistan."
With more than 40 members of the RHLI volunteering for Afghanistan, many of them more than once, the RHLI qualified easily for the honour. The honour carries a special distinction shared with the "South African War" honour, in that they are the only two where the RHLI did not suffer any fatal casualties.
