    The photo of the Colour Party in scarlets shows the proper way of wearing the pillbox. Many, if not most, cadets today just plunk their pillbox onto their head. They have lost the art of the “tilt”. Suggest this photo be posted in the dorms as an example.

    The photo titled “Centennial Grads with Brucie ’76” or similar MAY be from 1976, but the four cadets in the picture are all Class of 1977: Russ Douglas, Mike Lerhe, Paul Specht, and Ray Richards.

    The difference being of course that the Class of 1976 were the “Centennial” grads.

    The unarmed combat club seems rather heavily armed. I was wondering if anyone from that era recalls why that might be or whether the scope of the club’s activities also included shooting?

    Rifle-team-rm4-761.jpg, labelled Rifle Team, was actually the Pistol Team of 1975-76. I’m in the front row.

    As to the weaponry of the Unarmed Combat Team, shooting was not part of its activities. The weapons were used in demonstrations of defence against an armed opponent.
