ROYAL ROADS: Ex-Cadet Oral History Project

A project dedicated to recording the cadet experience at Royal Roads

We are interested in preserving stories that capture moments throughout the cadet experience. From’wakey wakey’ to ‘kye’ in the gunroom; from initiation to skylarks; from new recruit to graduation.

The aim of this project is to document the history of Royal Roads through the stories of cadets and staff.

What do you remember about attending Royal Roads?

Project Update – June 2008

50 interviews have been conducted since Homecoming 2007, with a result of over 30 hours of film and 200 pages of transcriptions. A 50-minute DVD documentary has been created utilizing excerpts from the interviews as well as historic photos.

The film was shown to a large gathering of ex-cadets on May 25, 2008. Coming Full Circle: Remembrances of Royal Roads Ex-Cadets is available by donation. All proceeds will go towards the Royal Roads Military Heritage Fund.

Download the DVD order form HERE.

How to Participate

Interviews – We would like to continue interviewing ex-cadets and staff about their Royal Roads experience. Some of the interviews will be videotaped, and the others recorded. Typical questions will be: What were your first impressions when you arrived at Royal Roads? What was a typical day like? What did you do for fun? What was unique about Royal Roads? How has your training at Royal Roads served you throughout your life?

Stories – It you are unable to participate in an interview, but have written stories and anecdotes, we would be pleased to include them in the collection.

Interview Excerpts

“I remember coming here. We came into the parade square and we all lined up, and it was the first time that I got the feeling that I was in this with a bunch of other people that were in the same boat as me. So, there was some reassurance that we were all doing this together.” – 10340 Rick Wing, Class of 1972

“Wakey wakey was 6:30 in the morning. You had 20 minutes to get your bed perfectly made, get properly dressed, get cleaned up, and fall in. And then you went to breakfast. And then you went down to the locker room and you got properly brushed because we wore navy blue uniforms, and everything had to be totally free of this rather strange substance called ‘froust’ – that was anything that was detectable by the naked eye on your navy blue outfit which was not supposed to be there.” – 4459 Ed Murray, Class of 1957
