A real Royal
Canadian Mounted Policeman showing his sword to the child
store in the mall. How many of you remember Sgt. Preston on the
radio back in the 1950's?
How many of you, bought Quaker Oats cereal so you could collect your
deed for the
''One Square Inch'' in the Yukon provided by the Klondike Big Inch
I have two of the certificates that I have kept since I was a child.
(Please read below from the internet)
The ''Klondike Big Inch'' was a
promotional campaign by Quaker Harvest Oats in the 1950's.
The deeds, for one square inch of Yukon land, were included
in cereal boxes. Although it was a very successful marketing
enterprise, the deeds were strictly promotional and never
entitled holders to any actual land. The land has long ago
reverted back to the Crown of Canada.
From the time "The Challenge of the Yukon" began in 1947,
kids all over the country rushed home from school to listen
to the radio program about a Royal Canadian Mounted Police
officer who kept law and order in the territory with the
help of his dog Yukon King and horse Rex. The hero was so
popular that in 1953 the program was renamed ''Sergeant
Preston of the Yukon.''

helicopter. I took a digital photo of a postcard that I purchased in
the gift shop
