Custodial history

Items in this collection were gathered by members of the Military Heritage Committee through contact with the ex-cadet community and families thereof. Project lead, Dave Bindernagel, provided via electronic transfer various items of information (accession 2022-008) collected throughout the project as well as administrative files related to creation of the plaque. Some items were also retrieved from vertical files already in the RRU archives collection.

Scope and content

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.
