I owned a house built near 1941 in Bouchard plant then rename Camp Bouchard.

At that time the adress was 9 Crest road.

(I will continue in french, sorry)

Les 20 maisons bâtit dans ce rond point sont toujours debout, elles sont été modifiés mais toujours là.

Je recherche des photos ou des informations au sujet des gens qui ont habité ma maison ou une des maison du quartier entre 1941 et 1976.

Camp bouchard became 34 Ordnance Ammunition Depot (34 OAD), Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps, after WW2.

I recommend you visit the RCOC Museum in Montreal at 6560 Hochelaga Street in the east end of the city. The Museum has a web page. The curator's name is Andrew Gregory.

Do visit it before it becomes the Logistics Branch museum which will happen sometime this year.

Hi gang.
I used used to live at Camp bouchard in the 60-70's.
Very hard finding any photo's online of my past times there. Tried goggle maps but hard to pin down because of all the changes over the years. We took a few trips to expo with the school and Belmont park to finish off the summers.
Very few families on the base but a great place growing up a a kid as my father served in the military. Most of our time was spent playing in the surounding woods, no worries back then going 2- 3 mles in the bush for the day then coming home for supper.
Wish i could connect with friends i knew there as they were a great bunch.
Any links to online photo's would be a great help.
Thanks
