Class of 1962 Alumnus Creates new Board Game – DIGITS
A number of this game are already ‘out the door now’. One in particular means much to James.

She called James after reading about this game in the Stratford Beacon Herald. Other games have already found their way to schools. And a few others have already been mailed to interested ‘shoppers’ east and west. A good start for what is hoped will be a source of considerable fun, excitement, surprise and reward for many.

Royal Military College Wall of Honour Acceptance Speech by Lieutenant Colonel (ret) Robert Banks
Through drill and class, and of course much more, RMC gave me the educational range, flexibility, determination, and confidence to think broadly in a way that allowed me to bring knowledge from disparate skillsets to solve a problem. In my case, the skillsets were engineering, flying and medicine. While I may have been average at each of these, it was the intersection of these skills, applied at the right time, when needed, that allowed me to think in ways that were different than others.
