What was the CMHS?

Founded more than 25 years ago, the Calgary Military Historical Society was a registered not-for-profit society in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, dedicated to the study of Canadian, Commonwealth and world military heritage, and the preservation of military artifacts and records.

The society's aims were to allow its members to:

  • Meet people with similar interests
  • Attend monthly 'show and tell' meetings
  • Participate and display at exhibits, and attend CMHS functions
  • Receive the monthly CMHS Sabretache newsletter
  • Publish articles in the Sabretache and on the CMHS website

As the Covid 19 pandemic entered its 3rd year, the Society could no longer fulfill its original aims. Regrettably, in December 2022 the decision was made to formally dissolve the CMHS.
