    Cadets in Hyde Park 1946
    I\'m 87 now, I was 15 in 1946 and I was one of those cadets. Which one? That\'s a good question. I was a laddie down from Scotland together with others. I might not even recognize myself if put to it.
    But I have never forgotten the experience, and latterly I have searched for some documentary evidence that that particular parade did in fact take place.
    Thank you Pathe.

    Just as an aside: my father, also called James Ward, served with the Army Kinema Corps (later Corporation) from the 1940\'s until his death in Malaya in 1956. I found a mention of him in a piece by Mr Haberly, but otherwise not much else.

    With my regards,
    Yours truly
    j. p. ward.
