The items in this collection belonged to the St. Andrews branch of the New Brunswick Navy League, itself part of the larger Canadian Navy League. The purpose of the St. Andrews Navy League was to organize, manage, promote, and provide funding for a local Sea Cadet corps which they were a sponsor of, the #303 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps “St. Croix”, formerly “St. Andrew” when it was first formed in 1987. The items in this collection provide information on how the St. Andrews Navy League would support their cadet corps and the different kinds of activities their Sea Cadet corps would participate in.
The different types of items include correspondence, either with people or organizations outside the Navy League or within the Navy League, programs and pamphlets meant to promote the Sea Cadet movement or specific Sea Cadet and Navy League events, documents related to St. Andrews Navy League meetings, including minutes, agendas, and supplementary notes, blank awards or certificates to recognize the contributions of Navy League members or Sea Cadets, documents on the history of the Navy League, documents which outline the internal policies of the Navy League organization, news items and announcements published for promotional purposes which were circulated in public newspapers or within the Navy League and Sea Cadets, documents related to training cadets, financial information, and documents which outline how the Navy League and the different events it would organize were structured.
