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 outstanding achievements and contributions to Canada or the world.
This project has the strong support of the College and the Foundation, and has three components: a physical wall, a selection process and an information technology element. This institutional physical and procedural infrastructure 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 Truth Duty Valour guide their lives.
The Physical Wall of Honour
The Wall of Honour is six feet eight inches high and 132 feet long. Plaques of honour shall be mounted on the Wall, inviting all who view to pause and read a short description of these recognized Canadians. It is located on Verite Drive (the previous roadway running behind the Commandant's house to Rideout Row), which is the main path for cadets proceeding to and from the College sports facilities.
Eligibility and Nomination Criteria
The Class Wall Committee is seeking nominations of candidates from Ex-Cadets and other interested parties for induction to the Wall of Honour, the ceremony being held during Reunion Weekend. The Criteria and procedures for nominations are available for download at RMC Wall of Honour Criteria and Protocol.
Submission of Nominations
Nominations submitted must be keyed to the criteria stated in the document; a simple biographical statement, whilst useful for context, will not suffice.

In case of a deceased nominee, then a family or other contact will be required.
