This is the passing out squad photograph of 85 Squad who joined at Scarborough on the 6th April 1943 and trained on the Isle of Man. Our service numbers ranged from RMB/X2024 to X2041 I think. We were all aged 14 -16 years and I was 14 ½. Donald Mankins' parents were quite well off and bought him out after a few months. Ray Wilding was discharged and went on to become quite a well known heavyweight boxer in this country and the USA. Once I left the IOM I never again met up with any of the remainder of the squad which I think must be some sort of record,. even though I completed my 12 years service. I do know that Peter Diment completed his 12 years and went on to be percussionist with the Met. Police Band.

Please find attached photos for your “Squad & House” photo page.
There is a story about the Neptune House Photo. Prior to the photo shoot day all boys agreed to poke their tongue into their cheeks or pulling sad faces (it seemed all the rage at that time for some reason long forgotten). When the proofs were received by C/Sgt Petterson (we were really mean to him as Boys!!) he was apoplectic. We were all paraded and very well told off. The next time Basil Kidd was in we had another one taken (the one attached). If you look very closely at Andy Mytum and me the message didn’t quite get through!

Best wishes to all RMB’s (ex and current) Brian 'Eggy' Hobbs.
