We Get Emails: Some ‘Vintage’ Photos of the 1956 Prep Year Entry Class at CMR

The following comes from 5119 Bill Shead. 

On 6 September 173 young fellows took the oath to become members of the Canadian Forces as Officer/Naval Cadets at College Militaire Royal de St. Jean (CMR).

Attached are a number of photos taken in 1956 (65 years ago), 1959 (final year at CMR), and 2006 (50th Anniversary of entry and joining the Old Brigade).

The late Robert Blais (5043) preserved the 1956 & 1959 photos and shared them with his classmates at our 50th Reunion.

Of the 173 entering CMR in September 1956, 166 entered Preparatory (Prep) Year and 7 were BA entries.

Georges Ostiguy (5039) convenes a monthly luncheon of members of the 1956 CMR Classmates in the Montreal area.
