About Us

- 1292 is the Top Army Cadets Corp in Southern Alberta -



1292 is one of oldest Army Cadets Corps in Alberta. Today the Corps parades out of the General Sir Arthur Currie Building, 4225 Crowchild Trail, Southwest Calgary at about 45 cadets strong. An extremely active Corps, they pride themselves on more field exercises than almost any other Corps in Alberta.

The basic Army Cadet program is important to the corps; 1292 won the Army Cadet Challenge-Alberta 2011 with an outstanding performance at CFB Edmonton.  We had a higher "pass" percentage in our senior Cadets in their National Star Level Exams than any other Corps in Alberta. One of our cadets was selected to go to Wales for the summer of 2013 with the British Cadet Force, and in June of 2013 we were recognized as the "Top Army Cadet Corps in Southern Alberta".

1292 also has a strong and well supported shooting program. Our shooting instructor, Ocdt Badminton has completed 2 years of Bisley and has been invited back as coach in Connaught. Our shooting team won top team in our region in 2012, and went on to nationals.

We are well supported by the Regiment and also receive strong support from the King's Own Calgary Regiment, a Primary Reserve Regiment in Calgary.
