Proud Father Day

One of those proud father days on Saturday when one of the boys passed out of Sandhurst on his Reserve Commissioning Course. I remember only bits of my own parade there yet remember all of the Chapel service before. Sitting in the beautiful Memorial Chapel, singing some of our great hymns in an atmosphere charged with sincerity as cadets are reminded by the Chaplain of the solemnity of their sacred duty to their men, it is difficult not to feel stirred if not overawed for one is surrounded on every panel of the Chapel by the names of cadets who gave their lives in the Great War and there are a very, very great many of them.
