  In 1940 the organization started under the command of Mr. Bill Grant, principal of the high school which was J. L. Jackson then. This program was compulsory for all students, male and female and was called the high school Cadet
Corps. The uniform was a white shirt, blue pants, with a white stripe down the pant leg. Girls wore a blue skirt and
white blouse. In 1945 the command was then taken over by Mr. Bob Yerborough, principal. Between '45 and '47 Mr. Jack Michell took over for a short period. In 1947 Mr. Maurice Landers took the command and held the position of Commanding Officer for 25 years, retiring in 1972. 

Sometime during this 25 years, the Corps moved into Sarha Hall (which has since been torn down). During that time the Royal Canadian Legion became the sponsor. Also the Rocky Mountain Rangers Militia became our affiliated unit. Mr. Bob MacAulay took over in 1972, being a teacher in the Senior Secondary High School, he moved the Corps from Sarha Hall to one of the class rooms. He operated out of there for a couple of years, then gradually moved to the basement of the high school. There he built a one-room office with stores and training. During 1975 girls were back into the Cadet movement. In the fall of '75 Gordon Redman took the Command. In his four years of Commanding Officer he added four extra Offices, which we operate out of at present. In 1980 the Command was handed over to John Smith. He served his three years and passed it onto Capt. Ethel McLeod in 1983.
