Marching to tech - unknown entries (photo. courtesy of Tiny Kuhle) (small) (large)
Tony Mooney wrote to say about this photograph:
I saw this on the RAFLAA website this morning and I think the Apprentice
looking to his left is Chris Armes and the Corporal Apprentice to the
right of the flight is 'Colonel' Everitt. I can't be sure but I'll bet a
couple of beers on it because I was in the 84th with them. I would guess
from the slack marching that they were senior entry at the time. Colonel
was in charge of some of the 84th billets so it fits that he was marching
them top Tech. As he's a C/A it means they weren't yet in their final term
as he graduated as an S/A/A.
Do you remember the tune played just before "lights out"? Here it is.
Did you know there was a "Manual for Flight Commanders in Youth Schools"? Here it is.
