History - A Drill Association (Cadet Corps) at The London Collegiate Institute was formed 12 Mar 1880 and in 1904 was given No. 9, and known as London Collegiate Institute Cadet Corps. Later of Battalion strength in (approx. 600 all ranks) in 1913, it eventually disbanded 2 Oct 1933.   H.Q. 12-97-1

The Corps reformed eff. 19 Dec 1940 (MO 10/41) as No 9 London Central Collegiate Institute Cadet Corps. It was sponsored by London Board of Education. According to a letter on file, authority was granted to affiliate with Cdn Fusiliers, CA (R) (City of London Regt), effective 12 Mar 42. Affiliation with The London and Oxford Fusiliers (3rd Bn) RCR was cancelled, and effective 1 May 1958 the Corps re-affiliated with 3rd Bn RCR (London and Oxford Fusiliers).

The Corps was reformed, in accordance with Militia Order 10/41, on 19 December 1940 and was designated as the #9 London Central Collegiate Institute Cadet Corps. The London Board of Education sponsored it. The Corps absorbed two other Corps on 01 May 1960: #2414 (Sir Adam Beck S.S. at that time and now reconstituted as an active Cadet Corps in London affiliated with the 1st Hussars) and #2601 (G.A. Wheable S.S.).

Effective 1 May 1960 corps was re-designated No. 9 London Secondary Schools Cadet Corps (this was the amalgamation of 3 cadet corps, No. 9, No. 2414 (Sir Adam Beck) and No. 2601 (G.A. Whealee). affil.: 3rd Bn Royal Canadian Regt (London & Oxford Fusiliers), May 1, 1960. Effective 3 Apr 1968 corps re-affiliated with 1st Bn, RCR. In 1993 corps affiliated with 22nd London Service Battalion without authorization. Redisig: (22) London Service Battalion Cadet Corps

The present Army Cadet Corps was originally formed as a Drill Association in 1880. They were also known as the London Collegiate Institute Cadet Corps with approximately 600 all ranks in 1913.

The Corps was reformed, in accordance with Militia Order 10/41, on 19 December 1940 and was designated as the #9 London Central Collegiate Institute Cadet Corps. The London Board of Education sponsored it. The Corps absorbed two other Corps on 01 May 1960: #2414 (Sir Adam Beck S.S. at that time and now reconstituted as an active Cadet Corps in London affiliated with the 1st Hussars) and #2601 (G.A. Wheable S.S.).

The Corps became affiliated with the Canadian Fusiliers CA (R) on the 12th of March 1942. This unit was designated as the 3rd Battalion of The RCR in the army reorganization of 1954 and the Corps officially changed their affiliation to The RCR affiliated through the 3rd Battalion (London and Oxford Fusiliers) on the 1st of May 1958. In 1965 the 1st Bn of The RCR, a regular battalion took over the affiliation. The Corps negotiated an affiliation with 22 Service Battalion in 1993 after the departure of the 1st Battalion of The RCR from London to Petawawa. 

The militia battalion of The RCR still in London (now designated 4RCR) was overwhelmed by attempting to support the Corps formerly assisted by 1RCR in addition to the Corps it traditionally assisted.

On July 1, 1989, the #9 RCACC reached an inflated size to support a division,  a second Corps was ordered by RCSU and formed to support west London, reactivating the disbanded 2414 number. The new Corps took on an affiliation with the 1st Hussars and was sponsored by the City of London Board of Education, becoming a sister Corps to 102 RCACC Sarnia, which was also 1H affiliated. Several of the existing #9 staff and cadets assumed roles in the new Corps, including #9 RCACC DCO Maj Ben Bebee, CD taking on the role of CO and his son C/CWO Ben Bebee JR as cadet RSM.

#9 RCACC negotiated an affiliation with 22 Service Battalion in 1993 after the departure of the 1st Battalion of The RCR from London to Petawawa. The militia battalion of The RCR still in London (now designated 4RCR) was overwhelmed by attempting to support the Corps formerly assisted by 1RCR in addition to the Corps it traditionally assisted.

Sponsorship by the London Board of Education ended in 1996 and the Corps was re-named the #9 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps. A Support and Sponsoring Committee for #9 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps (London) was established on the 30th day of May 2002. In 2005 Victory Branch 317 of the Royal Canadian Legion became the official Corps Sponsor and the committee continued on as a Support Committee only.

The 1RCR move to Petawawa greatly affected enrolment numbers in the Corps, as many cadets were the children of regular force serving members in 1RCR stationed at CFB London. This in a sense sparked the end of what has often been referred to as the "Golden Era" by #9 alum, where previous enrolment in the Corps reached over 300 cadets.

On 01 September 2010, after 20 years, 2414 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps amalgamated back into No 9 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, and therefore 2414 was shut down as a Cadet Corps.   All staff and cadets transferred over to No 9. This also assumed a new second affiliated unit as a result, the 1st Hussars now affiliated again for second time with the Corps.

2016, after assuming Command of 9 RCACC, Major R.B. MacKinnon, CD decided to take the Corps into a next level of dress and enhance involvement with the 1st Hussars. The decision was made to end the double badging of Cadets on the floor between 1H and SB. Moving forward with an all 1H format, except for the competition Pipe Band, which would remain in SB badging while in highland dress. By May 2017, all cadets were rebadged 1H and given all items approved for wear by the 1H. This was a massive collabrorative effort between the Support Committee, private donations and the 1st Hussars Cavalry Fund.
