    Hi Pete The RCAC patch that you have top right corner was the one we were using at this time I am not a 100% positive but I do believe the maple leaf style had already being replaced a few years earlier mid 70s.

    I was on course in the camp in Vernon many times Pete it was a excellent place to spend the summer months .
    When I had leave I would go down to Polson park at the bottom of the hill and spend my spare time there.
