Scan of some 35mm positive strips, can really start to tell the difference between source material.
I’d figure the same lads from the Drill Hall or members of the Lanark & Renfrew Scottish Regiment.
The group was made up of high school students from Almonte, Carleton Place, Perth and Lanark. Lots of fun that summer. We took first aid, rescue, map reading, signals, military drills, finishing with 2 weeks of small arms training with FN rifle, hand grenades, mock battles at Camp Petwawa.

Carleton Place Cadets in front of the high school
In the ’50’s we wore battle dress uniforms with white belt and gators with bicycle chain to hold your trousers straight and a beret to top it all off, so this picture was before or after that time
I agree with Peter. I was a member of the cadet corps (1954-1956) and the band from 1956-1959 during which time we wore olive drab battle dress and berets. The dress of the cadets (wedgies and work dress) was introduced post 1968 and the Forces unification
I know we recruited a lot of guys from the high school band when we started the OYB band in 1959. I think the majorettes as well. Andy Dunlop, my brother John, Lornie Hudson, Garry Greer and Yappy Brown were the drum line. All from the high school cadet band I think.

From Gord Cross–CPHS Cadet Band 1958– Tell me where this is on Bridge Street??:) I know..
Ray Paquette The young man appears to be dressed in an Army Cadet uniform. The store he is in front of was Bowland’s Grocery (Carleton Place) at the time the maple tree was growing out of the side walk. I walked by on my way to and from Central School
Royal Canadian Army Cadets of Carleton Place High School paraded the school grounds. Thanks to Gord Cross for this photo and maybe someone can tell me what year this was..
My memory is very foggy on this, but I believe Lloyd would have graduated 1955 and I would date this about 1953. Could be that I am in this photo but impossible to tell. The shop teacher Mr. Vought(sic) was the school liaison. I recall target practice in the Gym where they stored a bullet catcher at one end. Perhaps the photographer (Newton) would be a clue.

Fact–A new Militia Hall (1866) was located on Beckwith Street and the Carleton Place area had recently contributed 60 well trained and equipped volunteers during the U.S. Fenian raids into Canada.
Drill halls built in 1866 at county centres including Perth, Carleton Place and Almonte were used for many years. The Carleton Place drill shed was at the market square between Beckwith and Judson Streets, at the former site of the skating rink which is now the library.
