Cadet corps of the Zouaves pontificaux canadiens, Sacré-Coeur Parish, Chicoutimi, 1924

Type: Image

In French Canada, cadets were often attached to the Zouaves pontificaux canadiens. This Francophone religious paramilitary group was founded in 1899 by Charles-Edmond Rouleau. At the time it was believed that the Zouaves were more attuned to the French-Canadian community than the Anglophone-commanded Canadian Militia. The cadets' uniforms were modelled on those of the régiment des Zouaves pontificaux, a volunteer unit that was part of the army of the Papal State. Almost 400 Canadians served with the unit in Rome between 1868 and 1870. (Lemay photo, 1924. Archives nationales du Québec à Chicoutimi, 68810)
