REUNION WEEKEND CHANGE OF FORMAT

I have decided to use our Facebook page ( RMC Class of 1969 ) to comment on this matter. A reminder that our FB page is a closed group which means you have to apply to join the group. This can be done by either utilising the request to join link on the FB page or friending me (I'm Wil Bush and the photo is a silhouette of me on the left side of a sunset over a river).

On our recent reunion I have two flash drives (Bill Gard's and Linda Wright's) to review and post more photos. A work-in-progress. As before if you are in a photo I will send you a copy. If you have some great shots, I encourage you to forward them to me for posting. Do it now before you forget you attended!

The Last 50 Years in Photos


I am using a photo posted yesterday by Ron K to segue into searching your archives for photos you wish to share. If you are a member of our Class of 1969 Facebook page, you can post them to the photos section. If you are not, please consider joining. An alternate approach is to send them to me and I will post them either on our blog or FB page. Ideally there will be enough to show at our reunion on the Friday night.

I would also ask that you include a current photo of you, or you and your family. If nothing else it may help avoid embarrassing moments reunion weekend when you recognize a face but no name comes up.

WHY IS IT THAT THE ROADENTS SEEM TO HAVE ALL THE CLOSET PHOTOGRAPHERS? NEED SOME FROM CMR and RMC

Thank you for open your vaults - pictures I have never seen before

Bill Gard determined that the Williment trophy is on display in the Royal Roads museum, along with a photo of the first winners, MacKenzie flight. Trophy was given for the most outstanding flight in each of the three yearly Cadet Officer slates. Through a process of checking rooms, academics, sports, drill and other relevant College activities such as Logging, blood donations, a flight is recognized each slate for its performance.

Memorial to the Unknown Recruit


Our Grad Parade.

If you think you see a Feu-de-joie you would be correct.
The GG (Roland Michener) presented the  new “Canadian” Queen’s Colours.  Pete Van H and John Robinson were the colour bearers, Colour Guard 4 Sqn,  Guard Commander, Bill Lye. The final Royal Salute was in the form of a Feu de Joie.

L-R: Robin Fish, Barry Jewell, Gerry Hammond, BTB Rene Bourgault, Chris Bissell, Craig Nairne, Larry Riegert, Jim Nicholson
These 2nd year senior cadets set up the obstacle course for the first year junior cadets at Royal Roads in 1966.  These seniors also ran the course, hence the photo.
First and only time I've seen the "animal" in Chris!
