Sunset Guard practice in number fives

 

Stationed at RCAF Station Downsview in Toronto, the Sunset Guard performed for two weeks at the CNE Grandstand twice a day. We were preceded by none other than Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and Trigger!! It was determined that the most impressive marching and drill display would be to use army techniques. That meant lifting your foot vertically 14 inches and implanting it 16! Impressive though!!
