The 8CH Gaming Group

8th_Hussar a posted Feb 18, 13
This group is neither affiliated with nor endorsed by the actual 8th Canadian Hussars (Princess Louise's) Regiment. I chose to create this group because (a) the 8th Canadian Hussars (Princess Louise's) is one of the longest serving armoured regiments in the Canadian Army, and (b) because of a personal connection my family and I have to the Regiment. Any views presented on this site or in any game by any member of this group do not reflect the views of the actual regiment or any of its members.
Anyone who is interested in the real 8th Canadian Hussars (Princess Louise's) regiment can find more information at the following links:
This is a drama-free and fun-loving yet competitive group of online multiplayer videogame players. While we enjoy winning and want to improve our gameplay everyday, we put more emphasis on having fun and enjoying the game. We participate in random battles as well as team battles and tournaments but we are not a pseudo-military group with strict rules and a win-at-all-costs attitude. We play with respect, not hate, for the other players.
There is no restriction on tiers or player skill for joining the group as we are willing to help new players who are eager to learn. We also welcome experienced players who want to share their experience with players who are willing and eager to learn. The only real requirements are that you have a desire to learn and improve and a competitive streak that is tempered with a sense of humour and fun.
There is no strict age restriction in this group, but we prefer 18+. We may make exceptions for younger players but you are expected to be mature enough to follow orders and not be a "squeaker". Also, be aware that team communications - especially Battle Comms in the heat of battle - can contain language that is above the PG-13 threshold.
If you enjoy playing World of Tanks, Armored Warfare, or any of the other games we participate it in, and socializing with fun-loving yet competitive players, and if you want to improve your skills by combining them with the skills of other skilled players, this might be the group for you. Please feel free to fill out an application form. You may be accepted immediately, or you may need to participate in Team Training and/or Team Battles before being accepted into the group. This is at the discretion of the clan commander and officers.

One of the greatest Allied tank commanders who ever lived, and former CO of the 8th Canadian Hussars, has passed on.

Sydney Valpy Radley-Walters, born in Gaspé, served during WWII, fighting in the Battle of Normandy and participating in Operation Market-Garden. By the end of the war, Radley-Walters earned the title "Ace of Aces" as the top tank ace of the western Allies.

After the war, Radley-Walters went on to serve on peacekeeping missions, served as the Commanding Officer of the 8th Canadian Hussars, and was the commandant of the Royal Canadian Armoured School. He would go on to become the colonel-commandant of the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps.

Brigadier General Sydney Valpy Radley-Walters passed away on April 21, 2015, in Kingston, Ontario.

Rest easy, soldier. Your exemplary service is very much appreciated.

Bio at Maple Leaf Up:

As World of Tanks celebrates its 2nd anniversary in North America, one of Canada's longest-serving armoured regiments celebrates its 165th anniversary.

Article from the City of Moncton's website:

The 8th Canadian Hussars (Princess Louise's) Regiment is considered the very first mounted regiment in British North America as they originated from the mounted cavalry troops that were active at the time of the War of 1812.

This year also marks the 70th anniversary of their landing in Italy. Arriving at the port of Naples in December of 1943, the 8th Hussars moved northward with the 5th Armoured Division to take part in the fighting at Ortona.

The bloody battles of Cassino and the Liri Valley, the Melfa Crossing, Ceprano, the Gothic Line, Missano Ridge, Coriano, the Lamone River Crossing and Coventell, as well as later battles in Holland, would ultimately cost 66 Hussars their lives.

Men and women of the regiment have also served with distinction in major operations both domestic and abroad including the Boer War, the First World War, Korea, Egypt, Cyprus, Germany, Bosnia and Afghanistan.
