Caption: Members of the Ladies School Cadet Corps in St. Catharines, Ontario, in 1891

As early as the 1880s, a few volunteer militia regiments had auxiliary companies consisting of women like these members of the Ladies School Cadet Corps in St. Catharines, Ontario, in 1891. Since they were unofficial, there is very little information about these formations. (Ontario Archives, Toronto, S-4821)
