F.H. Medcalf, O.F. Five new corporals appear in the front ranks, from the left: Cpl. K.C. Barnes, Cpl. C.E. McDowell, Cpt. T. Ward, Cpl. H.G. Jacobs and Cpl. J.A. Roberts. In the rear are four new sergeants, Sgt. Jack Taylor, Sgt, A.L. Bridgman, Sgt. B. Pilgrim, Sgt. R.C. Simms and Cpl. D. Littlejohn. Two were unable to attend who will become corporals. They were John Kaplanis and W.H. Johnson. The Intensive training conducted in the NCO School and in the conversion courses for three junior officers who were also successful in passing their examinations late last month was supervised by Major J.W. McNeil.”
