    If someone told me this I wouldn't have believed them. Stationed in Portage La Prairie Manitoba, close to the Parachute School in Rivers was the Canadian SAS Cadet Corps.

    I wonder what should flash and cap badge they wore. Could they have worn the wartime brass Parachute Batt. cap badge? Looking on the internet I could not find any reference to this cadet corps other than the corps was called the Manitoba Special Air Service Cadet Corps #745, formed September 28, 1948 and disbanded April 25, 1968.

    New kid on the block here. I was a member of the #745 MSASCC out of Portage la Prairie - for 4 years 1958 - 1962. Became Cadet Lt. and Ass't Bandmaster. Company consisted of 3 platoons each with about 30 cadets. Paraded every Saturday 10 months of the year with assorted classes in map reading, signals, I/C engines, First Aid, etc. Capped off every summer for two weeks of jump school at CJATC Rivers with instructors from RCR and Vingt Doos. Included was torture racks, landings, mock tower and high tower at Camp Shilo. Everything short of an actual jump. Wore maroon berets with parachute batt. cap badge. Good times.
