RMC Wall of Honour

The Class of 1963, as their gift to the College upon entry into the Old Brigade in 2009, have created and donated to RMC, a Wall of Honour to recognize ex-cadets of the Royal Military Colleges (RMC, RRMC, CMR) and others with College numbers for their outstanding achievements and contributions to Canada or the world.

The Wall of Honour project has three components, a selection process, an information technology element, and the physical wall itself, which has become an important part of the landscape of RMC.

It is intended that those recognized on the Wall of Honour inspire prospective recruits, existing RMC students, RMC graduates, RMC staff and all Canadians to be the best they can be through dedication, hard work, application of their talents and training and by letting the RMC principles of Truth Duty and Valour guide their lives.
