Comment: And the Southern End of the ground floor of Badcoe Hall. That area that was infamous for exams, mass lectures and presentations, parties, and also the dreaded "Dragon Squad" (although I don't think we had carpeted floors then!).
DSC07324 * Mar 2008 - the foundation pavers (overlooking the Parade Ground - and Queenscliffe in the distance) where once stood the OCS Memorial Wall - now located within the grounds of the Royal Military College, Duntroon. It is suggested that the OCS Portsea Alumni commission a life-size+ bronze statue of a saluting Offr Cdt, with plaques at base of all nations who had graduates from the OCS. * 2592 x 1944 * (2.43MB)

DSC07325 * If a statue can be erected here, then why not have a flag pole with the OCS flag permantly flying behind it.?? * 2592 x 1944 * (2.38MB)

DSC07326 * Oh the hours spent in gauged marching (slow and quick time) up and down this pathway - and also down at the Avenue of Trees, outside the Q buildings.
Remember saluting the Memorial Wall each time we passed (up and down) on this path? * 2592 x 1944 * (2.43MB)

DSC07327 * Mar 2008. The RSM's Hut. Is there really a tunnel from here down to area of Cadets' Beach.? * 2592 x 1944 * (2.4MB)

DSC07328 * Mar 2008. Northern end of ground floor Badcoe Hall (dedicated in 1967). However, I seem to remember there were raised seating here, as per a Model Room * 2592 x 1944 * (2.16MB)
