DID YOU KNOW?

On the north wall of the Chapel at Ashbury College in Rockliffe Park, Ottawa a memorial stained glass window was placed in the chapel by the former students and friends of 1337 Alfred Beaufort Belcher. The window was dedicated to the memory of Alfred Beaufort Belcher (RMC 1920), a devoted member of Ashbury staff from 1942 until his death April 4th 1963. It includes the crests of the Royal Military College of Canada and a few lines of one of Belcher’s poems “and God runs quiet fingers through the tired hair of the World”. Nicknamed “Duke”, he came to RMC from Ridley in 1917, and graduated in 1920. A heart attack prevented him from joining the Service. He retired to Bobcaygeon to raise bees, he did some acting on Broadway and wrote articles for stage journals. On his return to Toronto he joined the C.B.C. and also published a book of verse. He was an assistant master at Ridley for a few years before joining the staff at Ashbury in Ottawa in 1943.

Ney was the son of Major Fred J. Ney and his wife Helen Ney. Michael F. J. A. Ney was killed in an accident in Kenya in 1954 while serving as an inspector with the Kenyan Police Force.
