Charlie Hawks, Mr Mortars for a generation of Royal Canadians and my instructor at The School, took this picture with a polaroid camera. I believe he won the annual Canadian Armed Forces photograph with it. Thanks also to Abe Doney, Royal Canadian, for keeping Charlie's spirit alive. Abe is in the picture, btw. He is the Number 1 and if you will note, he is covering his eyes to protect his night vision in order to lay the weapon for the next round downrange. Pro Patria.   

No. 1 Abe Doney, No. 2 Gerry Oakley, No. 3 Bruce Musson
