Engraved on the stone, visible on he North-East corner of the building, is the motto: PER ARDUA AD REM - THE PURPOSE HELD THROUGH DIFFICULTIES. Accompanying the Governor General was the Chief of the General Staff, Major-General A.G.L. McNaughton, whose address during the ceremony is etched on the wall of the foyer of the main entrance to the building for all to read. Construction continued until, on 23 August 1937, the Canadian Signal Training Centre (CSTC) opened at Vimy Barracks. Colonel S.A. Lee, commandant of CSTC in Camp Borden, Ontario, moved the school to Kingston and was its first commandant. He turned over command to Colonel Forde the next month. On the occasion of Colonel Forde's retirement in 1942, the building was named in his honour.
