Air Cadets, Kirkland Lake, Ont.
1953 to about 1956
The cadets shown here are from 288 Squadron, Kirkland Lake, but some of them lived in
Larder Lake, Virginiatown and Kearns. Many thanks to
for sending me these photos and to
for identifying most of the cadets.

Back Row: Mr. Robert Young the KLCVI principal;
