Herb Blackhall, ’18, was another of the boys to reappear after some years’ absence. Herb went overseas with the 90th Battalion, was wounded when a stretcher bearer, and later transferred to the R.A.F. He returned as a cadet and seems to have changed but very little. Blackhall renewed many of his acquaintanceships at the reunion and dance and we certainly enjoyed meeting him again. He is thinking of going on a farm and when he has settled down that far he may settle the advisability of continuing his course.
