In 1948 this affiliation was transferred to 78th Anti-Tank Battery (Self-Propelled) RCA. In 1951 a troup of K.O.C.R.'s was formed in Lacombe an it became apparent that an affiliation with them would be more advantageous. affil.: King's Own Calgary Regt (14 Armd Regt), Oct 20, 1951. 17 Nov 1954 the corps status was changed from "School" to "open" and was redesignated as 434 Lacombe cadet Corps. IN 1968 the Corps requested a change of affiliation, which was granted, to 78th Fd Bty, RCA(M). In the 1980 annual inspection report the Corps wa placed on probation due to low strength until 30 Jun 81. At some time the sponsor changed to Lacombe Lions club.
