RCNVR Quebec Hockey Team
Members of the hockey team for the Quebec division of the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve (RCNVR) pose for a photograph.
Established in 1923 as an effort to provide the Royal Canadian Navy with a national presence at a time when it faced substantial budget cuts, the RCNVR soon established units, called "companies" or "divisions", across the country. In addition to providing training for naval service, RCNVR units also offered the opportunity for social and recreational activities like hockey, and often took part in activities like parades and official ceremonies in their home communities.
