On page 24 of my biography “My Adventurous Life” I talk about the Cadets, including the comment that we had to “stab a chaff-filled bag with our bayonets and imagine it was the enemy.”  It has been pointed out to me by my friend Rick Landers of North Sydney Tech that in those days we didn’t have bayonets, so that couldn’t have happened.  It is clearly a case of false memory.
