On 18 December 1961 the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals Museum opened in a few rooms in the basement of the Forde Building. In May 1996 the “new” Military Communications and Electronics Museum opened at its current location in a purpose-built Museum structure. In 2014 over ten thousand square feet of gallery space was added. 18 December 2021 marks the 60th Anniversary of the museum!
A social distanced Concert was created in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the Military Communications and Electronics Museum for your viewing pleasure. This concert features a mixture of holiday, classical, Celtic, folk, pop, and pipe music. Given the time of year the Museum opened it seemed suitable to include a number of seasonal pieces. The C&E Branch has always had a musical tradition. Unfortunately, due to health and safety reasons during Covid the Vimy Band and military marching bands were not able to be included in this musical celebration of the Museum’s 60th Anniversary. There is a display dedicated to the history of the band in the museum and hopefully in the not so distance future we will be able to celebrate with them once more. For those who were able to participate following Covid-19 protocols and guidelines, thank you! A special and heartfelt thanks goes out to the artists who contributed to this concert during COVID: Aviator Winchester and Private Li from CFSCE, Kevin and the Kitchen Sink, The Limestone Trio and Eric Gray from the PWOR. Many thanks to Rob Bailey from Kingston Soundworks. Enjoy! If you would like to commemorate this historic milestone for the Museum, please make a monetary donation by clicking the “DONATE” button.
