CORPS Photos

"Hermel continued leading the corps into 70s also creating two other corps in St. Peter, the Black Knights for children 8–13 years old and the Crusaders for members of the ages 14-20 years old. These corps did not exist long, but the tenacity and highly motivated leadership of Cliff Hermel is evident through their formation."

[From Govenaires History]

Cliff Hermel

"Cliff belonged to the American Musicians Union, past president of St. Peter Drum & Bugle Corps for 11 years. He organized, owned and operated two Junior Drum and Bugle Corps called "The Crusaders" and "Black Knights" with his wife and family for 14 years."

[From "untitled article" on the web]
When the Crusaders were formed in 1961 as the little kids that had been the Pee-Wees grew up, the Pee-Wees took on the name of the Black Knights and were known as such til they also folded in the winter of 1966.
