History -

This corps was formed on 13 June 1999 and sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 329 (special dispensation from the 329 Taber, Alberta; affiliated by the Canadian Forces Medical Services School; supported by CFB Borden (Confirmed by D CDTS ADM 209, 26 May 1999).


HISTORY OF 329 NEW TECUMSETH PRIVATE RICHARD ROWLAND THOMPSON ARMY CADET CORPS

In September of 1997 New Tecumseth inherited its newest cadet Corps. Two dedicated members of the community founded this cadet corps, 
Second Lieutenant Dave Robitaille and Warrant Officer Luc Lyness. This was done with hopes that they could provide the youth of the area a place to 
gather and develop into vibrant young adults. The initial name given to the Corps was 2408 Tottenham Army Cadet 
Corps, which was a satellite corps from CFB Borden. In 1998 the Commanding Officer, 2Lt D Robitaille relinquished his duties as CO and 
WO L Lyness took on the challenge as the new Commanding Officer. As Commanding Officer, (now Lt Lyness), he decided to change the name of 
the cadet corps to its present name, 329 New Tecumseth Private Richard Rowland Thompson Army Medical Cadet Corps and separate from Borden 
to become it's own organization. The number 329 was an old designator number for a unit in Taber Alberta. This cadet corps was disbanded but the designator number 
still belong to the town. The CO had to get special approval from the Army Cadet League of Canada to use this designator. The Commanding Officer also wanted to show its 
affiliation to the Medical Corps and include this in the corps name. It was decided to get approval to use Private Richard Rowland Thompson 
in the title because of his courageous acts as a Medical Orderly. An affiliation unit is one that shares an officially recognized bond of 
close ties between it and the cadet corps. On the 11 February 1999 Lieutenant-Colonel Charron, Commandant CFMSS requested that the 
Canadian Forces Medical School be the affiliated unit to the cadet corps. Sergeant Marc Tobin was appointed by the Commandant to be the Cadet 
Liaison Officer (CLO) for the school and was her direct link between the school and the cadet corps. 
Every Cadet Corps must be locally sponsored. A local sponsor is a person or organization accepted by the Chief of the Defence Staff to 
undertake the responsibility of the formation and financial support of the cadet corps. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #329 was glad to host this 
title. In the initial set up of the corps the legion donated space and resources for the cadets to start with. They provided office space in their building in 
which the corps could keep their administration and supplies. In the summer of 1998 Lt Lyness acquired and rebuilt a portable and moved the Cadet 
Corps HQ into its present location. The Community rallied behind the Cadets and its council allocated time at the recreation center for the cadets to 
train in. In February 2002 the Cadet corps had its first member successfully complete the National Gold Star program. This was a huge step for the cadet 
corps and its member. This triumphant task proved to the system that 329 was a viable and noteworthy corps in the system. 
With its short history in the community the cadet corps has received a few community awards and appreciation certificates. One of these awards 
includes the "Volunteer of the year" from the Chamber of Commerce in 2001.
