Just a couple photographs of me from my basic training days. A bit blurry, but what can you expect when you scan and crop a picture that was taken with film.
In the picture above, I'm in the first row second from the left. This was our PT kit with our C-Foxes platoon t-shirt which I'm sure wasn't original. The school name was the Canadian Forces Officer Candidate School (CFOCS) pronounced C-Fox.
This photo was taken at a drill practice for the drill competition. I'm in the first row, third from the right. I should have really been in the middle row, but the woman behind me was a bear-walker so they wanted to hide her a bit. A bear-walker is someone who swings both arm and leg on the same side when they walk. Try it, it's hard to do unless you really think about it, most of us swing the opposite arm and leg.
Basic training, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
