JUNE, 1937 2310, C.S.M. HARRY FITZ-GIBBON BOSWELL. Born, Montreal, January 6, 1915. School: Bishop's College School. "Yon Cassius hath a lean and hungry look, He thinks too much, such men are dangerous." Although Harry undoubtedly has always thought too much about what he was going to do on leave, it is not entirely in this capacity that he has made himself dangerous but rather when he donned skates and ventured forth upon the treacherous ice surrounding Wolfe Island. When not skating, Harry is in his element and from the first of our recruit year displayed a remarkable liking for running, so much so that he could be seen striding around the Fort practically any Wednesday. Since then the Bomber has been on both the class relay team and the track team for three years and captained this year's team through a successful season. Besides being a half-miler, he has always been near the first in the cross-country and made the harrier team in our second class year. Harry has played various inter-company sports, starring especially at hockey and is one of the better squash players in the College. In academics he has stood high and received a pip after our recruit year and crossed guns the following year. Last spring, Harry won a well-deserved stripe and this year is successfully guiding the destinies of "F" Company. Although the "Bomber" has a past, shrouded in darkness, we feel that his future in the R.E.'s is assured. "Good Hunting, Harry." A J. H. M. 2336, C.S.M. JOHN HENDERSON MOORE. Born, London, Sept. 27th, 1915. School: Ridley College. Jack arrived at the College fresh from Ridley and soon gained prominence by shattering all re- cords with his appendix. Not content with this he became, especially around "reveille," a too-effi- cient flat senior and after a successful season at junior hockey took charge of the class until June. A mainstay on the junior rugby and hockey teams as a third classman, Jake went on to make both first teams the following year. After being in- strumental in arranging the game between West- ern and R.M.C. Jack had the misfortune to break an ankle shortly before leaving but he more than made up for this as Co-Captain in hockey. Equal- ly as good academically, he stood 4th in his recruit year and has had no trouble holding 3rd place ever since, even picking up a prize or two while doing it. The inevitable stripe arrived in January of our second-class year and this year he has brought "A" Company to a standard of efficiency surpassed by none. If he can only explain cases in the court-room as well as at West Point week- ends, his success in law is assured. K. C. W.

R. M. C. REVIEW 2311, C.S.M. DESMOND EWART BRADFORD. Born, Victoria, August 3rd, 1915. School: Shawnigan Lake School. "He's little and he's wise, He's a terror for his size." Is he little? Look for yourself. Is he wise? His academic prowess bears witness to it. Is he a terror? Watch him with the gloves on. Aided and abetted by these three qualities Des. has found few unsurmountable obstacles. After four years there seems to be nothing which he has not done. In the field of sports no one could have taken a more active part than "the little man". As a recruit he gained a position on the Soccer, Harrier and Junior Basketball teams. Since then he has added Football, Tennis and Squash to his list of athletic achievements. Crossed clubs on his arm give proof of his ability as a gymnast, while crossed guns and rifles and three boxing cham- pionships to date still further widen his field. Academically Des. has always stood within the first five in the class although the old refrain, f'Gosh, I failed that one!" is one of his famous sayings. As a LfCpl. last year his all-round abil- ity was soon recognized and the last round-up has found him in charge of "D" Company. Under his leadership that company has been a menace in sports and an example on parade throughout the current year. He is a born soldier and the future will find him in the Royal Engineers. Good luck to you, Des. - may the shootin', huntin' and fishin' be always the very best. J G 0 2344, C.S.M. JAMES GORDON OSLER. Born, Hythe, Eng., September 7th, 1915. School: Appleby. On that memorable day in September, '33, an- other Osler took the shilling. This one has rosy cheeks and answers to a variety of nicknames but is commonly known as "Tug". He first came to the fore by being made class senior early in our recruit year. This position he held till the cake walk and its subsequent foray ended his reign. Jim has taken an active part in athletics dur- ing his career at the college. He was a member of the junior football and hockey teams for two years, captaining the former in his third class year, he has played two seasons of senior football. He also made a place on the senior hockey team and went to Montreal on the track team. His arm carries crossed clubs and crown, crossed whips, layer's badge and crown and crossed swords with the crown. . Last year he was appointed LfCpl. and proved the saying that coming events cast their shadows before by returning this year to find four stripes on his collar. He has guided "E" Company suc- cessfully through the current year. By his smart- ness, his keen sense of discipline and the pride he takes in his work he has always set a fine example. He is working for a commission in the Royal Engineers and if he continues as he has done thus far we feel sure he has a great career ahead of him. H. F-G. B.

R. M. C. REVIEW 2359, C.S.M. KENNETH CAMPBELL WILSON. Born, Perth, August 24th, 1914. School: Perth Collegiate Institute. A long-legged, rangy, blue-eyed Scot from Perth, Ken has been one of the bright spots in the class since the beginning, with an infectious grin and a bull-like bellow ready to break out on the slightest provocation. He distinguished himself early in his College career by his efforts in the track sports when he succeeded in breaking two College sprint records, the 220 and 100 yards. One of his marks still stands. Since then he has always been one of the leading members of the track team, despite injuries suHered in football. His recruit year also saw him prove his versatility as an athlete, playing both junior hockey and football and taking an active part in nearly every form of Inter-Company sport. The last three years have seen him one of the outstanding mem- bers of both the first hockey and the first football teams. The spur that he wears this year testifies to his riding ability as does the Lewis gun badge to his marksmanship. If ever the term all-round athlete applied to anyone it does so to "the pride of Perth." Ken has always been one of the foremost in the class and as a result he was the only one to be surprised when given a stripe last year. His success as leader of "B" Company this year is characteristic of him. Ken has spent the last two summers working in northern Quebec and intends to go into mining after graduation. A great many of us feel that the world of salesmanship is losing a good man. W. F. S. 2352, C.S.M. WILLIAM FREDERICK SHARON. Born, Red Deer, Alta., April 6th, 1915. After living all over western Canada and at- tending schools which he claims are too numerous to mention, Bill came east in '33 and has not been home since. When not on the frontiers of civiliza- tion Toar makes Hamilton his headquarters. Per- haps his iirst great achievement at College was the perusal of practically all of Galsworthy's novels during lectures in our recruit year. Toar has not neglected athletics, however, and for two years has made a place on the senior football team, also being active at nearly all forms of Inter-Company sports. In addition, his riding ability has won for him crossed whips and a spur. While at Petawawa last year, Bill found him- self, quite unexpectedly, hero of a well-ordered retreat, though as leader of "C" Company he no longer knows the meaning of that word. In fact Toar has been able to fulfil an ambition cherished since our third class year. He is now able to be Duty C.S.M., and moreover he often is. "The Champ" has had his difficulties with extra-kit inspections and long hours spent sewing on buttons, but is never daunted. After two sum- mers with a contractor in Nor. Quebec, construct- ing mining buildings for digging ditchesj, Bill intends to make this work his professgmnb M
