This photograph shows my brother, who is still alive at 86, when he was a boy soldier at Chepstow Boys' School. I think that it must be one of the oldest photographs of a boy apprentice. The uniform was the same as we had, except for the puttees, and no collar badges. He too says that the white belt was the bane of his life, and many pace-stick hits made him start all over with the white renovator!
