The Way It Was…In Photos

Over the next few weeks we plan on posting a number of “oldies but goodies photos” from the past 10 decades & beyond. Most of these photos have little or no captions. We retrieved them from both the Royal Military College of Canada library archives and an old shoe box full of photos laying around Panet House. Some will be easily identifiable but most may only be recognizable by those in the photos. If you can help us out please leave a short comment. Who, When & What was the occasion?

Quiz from last week: The 1963 Physical Eduction staff photo: Back Row (L-R): Art Vondette; Jim Murray; Jim (Max) McClennan; Jim Gebhardt; Bill Hayward; & Tom Walton.

Front Row: Bob Murray; Hank Tatarchuk; Danny McLeod; Jack Savage; & Ray Shanks.

Quiz for this week: Who is the 4 bar cadet shaking hands with the lady – (College Commandant – Commodore WP Hayes in the background)?
