FDM Sr Drum Corps
The Junior Flying Dutchmen Corps were founded January 31, 1967 as a Centennial project of the Flying Dutchmen Alumni. The Dutchmen won the Canadian Junior Novice Class in August 1967 and in 1969 both the Provincial and National Standstill Class. In October 1969, the Corps entered the Junior B Marching and Maneuvering Class

Early in 1970 the Board of Directors were very fortunate in securing the Kitchener Lions Club as a partial sponsor of the Corps. Later in the year the Army, Navy, Air Force Veterans Association Unit 147 of Kitchener was secured as a patron. Both clubs have helped the Corps very much financially each year, as well as the annual grants from the Cities of Kitchener and Waterloo.

The Junior B Provincial award was won by the Flying Dutchmen in August 1974 and in August 1975, both the National and Provincial awards were won in the Junior B Marching and Maneuvering class.

John Robins was Corps Director and Vice-President of the Flying Dutchmen Junior Drum Corps. Among his other duties, John was head M & M instructor and drill co-ordinator.

In the summer of 1969 the Dutch Boy Cadets were formed to serve as a feeder corps to the Dutchmen.
