Banff Master Cadet Course had an exchange program in 1963 with Jamaica. Cadet Lt Col Clarence Demchuk (2065 Yorkton Sask) while attending Banff traded shoulder patches with exchange cadet from Kingston Jamaica. One story stands out while on Columbia Ice Glacier tour the cadet picked up a handfull of snow tasted it formed it into snowball and threw it saying "I've never seen nor touched snow before this day."
