The Brandon ANAF Vets senior men’s team had an outstanding record from 1953 through 1957. Vets started their championship run in 1953 by winning the Brandon and area championship and captured the Brandon and Manitoba titles the following season. In 1955, they repeated and went on to lose the Western senior championship to Saskatoon in a well-played final. In 1956, Vets again reached the Western final, but dropped the final game 4-3 to the powerful Calgary Detroit Bears. Vets also won the Brandon and Manitoba championships in 1957.
