Lorne Scots Awarded the Afghanistan Battle Honour

In May, the Canadian Government announced it would be awarding Theatre Honours to units in the Canadian Armed Forces for their service in South-West Asia since the attacks on September 11th 2001. In 2001, the Canadian Armed Forces began deploying the Army, Navy and Air Force to, or in support of, Afghanistan. This 13 year conflict would be Canada’s single longest armed conflict.

Units in the Canadian Armed Forces would be presented a Theatre Honour if at least 20% of a given unit had deployed to a mission. The Lorne Scots had deployed nearly 25% of the unit between 2004 and 2012. On May 9th, the Lorne Scots were honoured to have chosen among many other units in the Canadian Army, as well a select number of units in the Navy, the Air Force and the Special Operations Force to be awarded the “Afghanistan” Battle Honour.
