My father seated far left went on to be a Physical Training Instructor in the army and achieved the rank of w/o 2 [warrant officer]. This was taken in the early days of his training in Aldershot Hampshire , UK.
Sadly his phyisical training didn’t rub off on me!.

Aldershot, Hampshire, UK.

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Love it, Mark!

  • Thanks Lynne, fine figures of fighting men. They must be in their 80’s now. It would be great if someone recognises them self.

    Great old photo Mark. My old man was in the Army for 22 years and his physique didnt rub off on me either mate so I wouldnt worry about it. Nick:))

  • The middle age spread is spreading!!. The only physical training I still do and I might say I am very good at is the vertical bar. I can raise a pint with my right arm with ease, there is hardly a sign of strain on my face. This is all good training for the beer festival at the end of the month. Cheers! , mark.

    Great old capture!

  • Many thanks Sam, Funny you should comment on this picture today. I have just an hour ago come back from the training school shown in the picture. I took my Father on a trip down memory lane, He’s 85 now but remembered all about the school and his Army stories. Great fun had by all. Kind regards mark.
