At least one recruit from this group picture session did come back after the war.
Some of these recruits most probably did not make it past I.T.S. That we will never know. Training was hard. Only a few made it after Initial Training School.
I wonder if Richard Neilhand Hammond is on this picture.
Hard to tell isn’t. I should have asked Allan Todd.
I have another picture to show you, but it’s not part of the Allan Todd’s collection. This one I am sure only one recruit made it back safely to Canada. I have met him more than 25 times since 2010.
