Mary Jane, My Date at the Senior Prom

MARY JANE

As I remember her from 1958. A number of cadet officers brought in dates for the Senior Prom weekend. Mary Jane was my date. First we inspected the Corps, passing along each company. Then we took our places on the reviewing stand and the Corps marched past in review. It was amazing how a date could raise one's esteem in the eyes of one's peers. I recall I was less mature than she at this time. The Professor of Military Science and Tactics, in other words, the real officer commanding, regular army Colonel Lachlan M. Sinclair, came up to me the next day and congratulated me! This was painted in oil on canvas in 1992.
