The first incarnation of the Mounted Police was the North-West Mounted Police (1873-1904). Antrobus served from 1873 to 1892. Material related to the North-West Mounted Police is relatively rare, but Glenbow Museum has some important holdings from this aspect of the force including the full dress uniform seen here. Other artifacts include binoculars and swords.
