This must be our first day, with our "nursemaids" who have probably just taught us how to pin our bands.
Nursemaids at the back: Pearl, Ashton, Hawkins
Squits in the front row: Wexler, Liles, Blogg
That's what I wrote on the back of the photo at the time, but now, with an uncertain and fading memory, I doubt one of those names.
Paterson and Brown also joined Col A at the same time, but they were, I think, moving up from the Prep, so they perhaps needed no nursemaid.
For lots more photos from CH in that era, see https://flic.kr/s/aHsjtQd7FT - but most readers of this forum have probably seen them already.

You are right; if you came up from the Prep you were shoved in on your own and for you etc the nursemaids would have been pretty useless- indeed as Trades Mon I don't think I appointed any. In the Prep they were with you for almost a week. You are referring to Ken Brown - he was a year behind me.
