On Saturday Jan 19, the 72nd RCACC cadet corps’ biathlon team headed up to Whistler Olympic Park to participate in the Vancouver Coastal/Fraser River Zone cadet biathlon competition…

Remembrance Day 2018

Every year on 11 November Canadians mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I.

Regimental Senior Cadet Day

One of the great benefits of the cadet program is the relationship cadet corps have with their regimental sponsors and the training day held for senior cadets at the Seaforth Armoury this weekend is an excellent example of this. Staring bright and early, and running all day long, over 40 senior cadets were hosted by…

FTX First Stag

Twenty-six cadets ventured out to Golden Ears provincial park Oct 13-15 for a weekend of fun and adventure, and achieved their goals on both accounts.

Colonel Fairweather 1920-2017

We were very sorry to learn of the recent passing of Colonel David Fairweather, on September 15, at the age of 97. A faithful and firm supporter of the Seaforth cadets, he was a friend and inspiration to many. His contributions to Canada and the example he set throughout his life have influenced countless numbers…

Always Have a “Plan B”

It’s always good to have a Plan B for when obstacles get in the way of one’s goals, and this past weekend was solid proof of that! We had planned a Field Training Exercise (FTX) to Chilliwack but, as snow began to fall on the Friday of our planned departure date, and kept on falling…

New Armoury a Thrill for Cadets

For some Cadets, rappelling at the newly renovated Seaforth Armoury will be the most memorable event of this month – maybe even the year! First opened in 1936, the historic Burrard Street building re-opened in September following extensive seismic upgrades and various modernizations designed to allow the century-old Regiment to continue serving the community and…
