    This item is a 1945 panoramic photo of Canadian Infantry Training Center at Camp Borden Ontario, taken on April 11, 1945. These are the men of No. 3 Company A10. This photo has some desirable hallmarks going for it. The men are clearly identifiable, wearing their field/web gear and are holding their Lee Enfield's. It measures 34" x 8". I still need to get this framed and matted.

      I'm wondering why you use the term cadet.
      C I T C stands for Canadian Infantry Training Centre.
      On a side note, my son is on his way there today for two months of training at the 31 Canadian Forces Health Services Centre.

      @ Walksoftly. I'm not quite sure, I seem to remember doing some research on this last year and the term "cadets in training centre" seems to have stuck. I'm sure it stands for Canadian Infantry Training Centre.

      Both my grandfathers served in Europe during WWII. Several uncles served in Korea and in the RCA out of Trenton, On. Getting information on their service from family members is like pulling teeth.

      I had two uncles that served in Europe during WWII, only one came home.
