"Strathcona's Horse" suggested as name for force, and adopted by Lord Strathcona.

January 28th. 1900:

Lord Strathcona arranged with Elder Dempster & Co. to charter the ship "Monterey" for the conveyance of the force from Halifax to South Africa, on the understanding that all the arrangements for fitting up the ship, for victualling and conveying the force must be carried out to the entire approval of the Minister of Militia.
