Custodial history

DND transferred records to RRU at time of closure of Royal Roads Military College. DND maintained archives between 1940 and 1995 when it operated a series of military and naval training institutions at Hatley Park, which were HMCS Royal Roads, 1940-42; the Royal Canadian Naval College, 1942-47; the Royal Canadian Navy - Royal Canadian Air Force Joint Services College, 1947-48; the Canadian Services College Royal Roads, 1948-68; and the Royal Roads Military College, 1968-95.

Records containing private information such as personnel records and exams were sent to RMC archives in Kingston. Records retained at RRU were those DND saw as helpful in the interpretation of the site for visitors such as photographs, maps etc.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of records made or received by DND in the course of operating a series of military and naval training institutions at Hatley Park (Royal Roads Military College and its antecedents). The DND records were transferred to RRU Archives following the dissolution of the Royal Roads Military College in 1995. Record media include paper, 16mm film reels, photographs and graphics.
