    In the photo from 1973 of the five cadets in scarlets, I believe Dave Hall is on the far left. He would have been in first year at the time.

    Does anyone know what vintage is the photo of the cadets on the rifle range, and what rifle they are using ? It is clearly a bolt action, and it looks like the Ross Rifle to me. I’m told that in the years leading up to the Second World War, the cadets of that era drilled with the Ross Rifle. It had, of course, been withdrawn from wartime service in late 1916 as a result of numerous complaints about its tendency to jam in combat.
