I was just looking through your recent issue and saw the photo labelled RMC Tug of War 1959. Someone identified the cadet in a white turtleneck as, possibly, Barry Winfield. I don’t recognise this guy, but the rest of the cadets are very familiar to me. Standing on the left is indeed Ralph Sykes. The first cadet on the rope is myself, Yvon Paquette, next is George McManus, then is Mel Brown, and the anchor could be Bob Billings, who recently passed away.
I have no recollection of the event. This photo comes as a happy surprise to me. There are no recruits here, as someone suggested. The cadets shown are all of the class that graduated in 1961.
I am sending this in case it should still be useful to properly label the photo.
4655 Yvon Paquette.
Ed: Thank you Yvon for the clarification.
To all the “old timers” out there who have made comments about cars being parked on the Parade Square these days – how do you explain this photo?
I don’t get to read all of the e-Veritas issues (but always enjoy those I do) so this may be redundant.
Reading about my classmate Len Lee in the most recent issue, I noticed the Director of the Kemptville campus is named Claude Naud, so I checked his bio on line and sure enough he is another ex-cadet. I don’t know his #/year of grad but as a young Lt/Air Navigator he served on my Argus maritime patrol crew in about ’72/’73, so he would have graduated from RMC about ’70-’72. I know he later went on to serve as Commandant of Royal Roads.
Just thought I’d let you know…if not already covered you might want to include him in a “Where are they now?” item.
