2310 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps partakes in 70th annual review

Published on May 08, 2018

Sault Ste. Marie MPP Ross Romano, joined by Commanding Officer, Capt. Calvin King and other 2310 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps officers and staff, inspected the corps Monday evening at the Sault Ste. Marie Armoury during the 70th annual review, for which Romano served as reviewing officer. 

The event included displays, a performance by the corps pipe and drum band, awards, Highland dancers and drill team. The corps, which rings in its 70th anniversary this year, was recently awarded the Maddox Trophy for Top Small Army Cadet Corp, and its pipes and drum band (combined with the 155) medalled at competitions, along with the drill team. The corps has had a number of biathletes qualify and medal at the provincial competition level and progress to the nationals. Also, its marksman team secured first place in the zone competition and qualified for regionals. Army cadets were launched in Sault Ste. Marie in 1904 with the formation of a number of corps under varying names. The current 2310 Royal Canadian Army Cadets formed — although under a different name — in 1948. The corps was, and remains, affiliated with the Sault Ste. Marie Regiment.
