Looking out of window on the right Tony Whitehouse. Looking out of the window
behind - a very young Mike Drinkwater.
Mind you, they all look extremely young to me - I'm surprised we were allowed
out at all.
This photograph was taken after we had split into our
classes but before we were allowed out and taken at the same time as the war
dance. Hut 326 is on the right. This hut was made up of all the alphabetical
leftovers from the other classes hence the high number of W's and Y's. It
had its advantages at summer camp as we always knew what was coming next in
the training. Wilson sadly left us after summer camp as he went down
with rheumatic fever. He was a sad loss to us all and we had all hoped the
medical boys would change their minds and let him stay in. There was also
a Tony Wise in that billet but he left early on during these first few weeks
when his parents split up.
