Hatley Park Collection

  • CA RRU 025-001
  • Collection
  • 1890-1990

There are several images of the castle, gardens and grounds at various points in time, as well as of Dunsmuir family members, and those of staff or contractors who worked on the Hatley Park estate. Some images are not from Hatley Park but have been included in collection because of their obvious connections, such as images of the Wellington mines.

Royal Roads Memorial Plaque Collection

  • CA RRU 020-002
  • Collection
  • 1941 - 2022

In 2021, the Military Heritage Committee at RRU approved the creation of a memorial plaque to honour the Royal Roads ex-cadets/alumni who gave their lives in the line of duty. The project was approved by RRU executive in March of 2022 for completion before the ex-cadet Homecoming event in September 2022. To provide more information about the people named on the plaque, it was agreed that a ‘book of remembrance’ would be created. This collection, comprising newspaper articles, photographs, biographies, obituaries, etc., serves that purpose. Veterans Affairs Canada also maintains similar files in a registry to honour and remember the sacrifices of Canadians who have given their lives serving in uniform. This information is available online in the Canadian Virtual War Memorial (CVWM). With permission, the entries in the CVWM have been saved as pdfs in this collection, and links to the original CVWM pages are provided.
