    For future reference, I think it needs to be remembered, and acknowledged, that Mark Norman is an Ex-Cadet. He entered Royal Roads in 1981 but withdrew a few months later, and completed his education at Queen’s. As an Ex-Cadet, he has a College Number, in his case, he is No. 15163. One of his classmates at Roads was No. 15185 Bill Truelove, who like Norman became an RCN officer, and later became Commandant at RMC. Another classmate was No. 15141, Ron Lloyd.
    It is also interesting to note that although Norman lasted only a few months in military college, in his subsequent career he rose to a much higher rank than the vast majority of cadets who do eventually graduate. Maybe there is a message in this ?

    Mike makes a good point. It can be added that there’s no stronger argument for a re-opening of Royal Roads than the renowned senior leadership the CF is presently fortunate to enjoy: Generals Vance and Wynnyk and, as noted, VAdm Lloyd. It seems even mere months there as a cadet can imbue one with greatness.
