Mackenzies Raiders, 3/4 CavIn preparing these pages for inclusion on I owe a debt of gratitude to two Veterans,  Mr Jerry Headley, Commanding Officer, Bravo Troop, 3/4 Cavalry (1968-1969) and Mr Stanley Homiski, Communications Sergeant, Bravo Troop,  3/4 Cavalry (1968-1969), who, over a period of several weeks, corresponded with me regarding the organisational details of an Armored Cavalry Troop. I sent them literally dozens of emails to which I received prompt and detailed replies. Without their help and encouragement this section would have been neither as complete or as accurate as it now is.

Bearing in mind that their recollections are based on service which took place 30 years ago at the time of writing, it is likely that there are some errors and omissions. I would ask that if you have details which you wish to add to this page or you believe it contains information which is incorrect, then please contact me

The contents of this page are based on the organisation of Bravo Troop, 3/4 Cavalry 1968-1969 and it has been constructed from the notes provided to me by Jerry and Ski -  I am enormously indebted to both men for their patience and generosity. Thank you gentlemen.
