The Annual Photograph Albums of Royal Roads Military College from 1963 to 1988

Large-format photograph albums (sometimes known to ex-cadets as the "Blue albums" or "Len Watling albums") commemorate annual events at the Canadian Services College / Royal Roads Military College from 1963 through to1988.  All the photo albums were digitized in 2013 with a British Columbia History Digitization Program grant from the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre plus matching funds from the RRU Military Heritage Committee and the Friends of Hatley Park. The albums are now available online; click on the college entry year (ie 1963 is the album for 1963-64 academic year) to view a copy of the album in a new window.
