This Day in History. 1972
It was forty years ago today that I reported for duty at le College Militaire Royal de St. Jean. This picture is from a few months later when I was home on leave wearing my dark blue Number 4 dress (or was it number 9? hmm maybe it really was 40 years ago!). Come back in 5 years and maybe I'll post a colour picture of me graduating in scarlet.
