A brief history of 1943.

During the war years, No. 1943 Norwell RC Army CC was formed and headed by the then Principal of Norwell, Capt E. C. Gray, and assisting was Sgt Major Husher, Royal Canadian Regiment, London, Ontario. Many members of the cadet Battery have served in the Canadian Armed Forces from WW2 onward.
