History -   

903 Kelowna High School Cadet Corps was orginally formed 14 April 1921. It disbanded 14 October 1925


On 11 December 1940 the Corps reactivated under the same designation. On 3 Dec 1947 the corps disbanded. The next day (4 Dec 1947) the corps reformed and affiliated with 9th RECCE Regt (BCD) and redesignated as 9th RECCE Regiment (BCD) Cadet Corps 'B' Sqn. Three corps had joined together to form one. A Coy was from Vernon (1705), and C from Penticton (788). On 1 Oct 1962 the Corps reverted to their former numbers and this corps reverted to 903 British Columbia Dragoons (Kelowna) Cadet Corps. In 1983 the Corps was placed on probation (no documentation) due to low strengths until December 1983. At that time probation was removed. Eff 26 Mar 96 sponsor changed to Royal Canadian Legion Branch 26 (D Cdts Adm 213). affil.: B Sqn 9th Recce Regt (British Columbia Dragoons), Sept 30, 1962

A Sqn 9th Recce Regt BCD Cadet Corps - Vernon. B Sqn 9th Recce Regt BCD Cadet Corps - Kelowna. C Sqn 9th Recce Regt BCD Cadet Corps - Penticton, all three squadron designation as of Dec 4, 1947.
