I can't locate Valour Place, Cambridge, on Google Maps.

Can someone give quick and dirty directions for coming off the 401?

Thanks, Dan.

Google might recognise the old address, as 21 Mill St. Valour Pl. is the name of the walkway up to the front doors, due to the monuments along it. So the address is recognised as 1 Valour Pl.
Directions from the 401 (Toronto) are as follows.

Take Exit 282 (RR-24 S, HWY-24 S, Hespeler Rd, Brantford)

Turn left onto HWY-24 (Hespeler Rd) Travel around 5600m. Keep right.

You'll come to the mother of all intersections, go straight (ish) through the intersection. Once through keep Left. The Tim Horton’s should be on your left.

Continue onto Ainslie St N; street becomes Ainslie St S. you'll travel under a train bridge, down a hill, and the road will split, keep Left, Right is oncoming traffic.

Travel through three sets of lights, and turn Left onto Main Street (there will be a Mr. Sub at the intersection of Anslie and Main St. Take your first right at the TD Canada Trust. You'll see the Armoury now, (big red brick building, next to the Bus Station) the road will curve left and the entrance to the parking lot is on the right, it's free on weekends.

Lance,

Had a great time at the open house. Very impressed with the equipment used today and by the militia men who are using them.

There was a large display of exotic weaponry that was privately owned, but I never found out who the owner was. I would have liked to have asked some questions, but maybe next year.

My favourite reenactment group? The CWACs, but I'm a sucker for a girl in uniform. I also liked the Spanish Civil War display.

The highlight however, was talking to Corporal Pagnacco for over an hour. Pagnacco is an RHFC member and Afghan vet who was wounded in country. He was there in full desert uniform and equipment. Answered everything I asked him about his gear, weapons, small unit tactics and the LAV III. Then he got a map out and oriented me to the area. He is an excellent advertisement for the RHFC and the Canadian Army.

All in all, I would do it again and recommend it to others.

Dan.
