Regina Armoury

The armoury was completed in March 1929. Over the years, the Regina Armoury has been used for many purposes other than military training: political meetings, musical and athletic events, industrial shows, and various other civilian activities. Perhaps the most outstanding event that was held in the armoury for many years was the annual armistice service, which was started in order to supply funds for the upkeep of the Soldiers’ Plot in the Regina cemetery.

The Regina Armoury continues to be the home of the Regina units of 38th Brigade Group: 10th Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, Royal Regina Rifles, 16th (Saskatchewan) Service Battalion, and 16th Medical Company. Other organizations that use the armoury include the cadet corps and the Military Museum of Saskatchewan.
