Hockey 1965-66 RRMC album RRU Archives

Athletics was an important instructional component for cadets attending Royal Roads Military College. Over the 55 year history of the college, they trained in sports such as track, rugby, boxing, sailing, and yes, hockey. The photo above is from the term hockey game on Feb. 23, 1966, when the junior year team beat the senior team by a score of 6-4.
