As an original member of Royal Cavalier I would like to give the origin history. Royal Cavaliers actually came to fruition when Robert Dunn left Deptford High School's indoor color guard. Some members followed him; one of which was my sister Joanne Root. They needed members so she asked me to join. At that point the guard didn't even have a name yet. We all made name suggestions; narrowed it down to a few and voted on the name.
It was 1974, I was in the honor guard my first year; went to sabre my second year and finally rifle. We began to form a fan base and started to attract many people who had graduated from their perspective High Schools and wanted to be members of our guard.
In 1980 I decided to march in Black Watch Drum and Bugle Corps' color guard; only because they were finally going to let guys in their indoor guard. Just before Canadian tour Mr. Wolfrom (god rest his soul, he died on my birthday) came to practice and saw guys in the guard and professed that guys would not march in his indoor; that is when I left. I should have returned to Royal Cavaliers; I would have been captain if I did, but at the time I was working night shift and was unable to make the practices.
Those years with Royal Cavaliers are great memories for me
