Our first word this year must of necessity be to those Old Boys
who have returned from service overseas. Wherever they may be,
we would like them to know that we do extend to them all a hearty
welcome back home. Already many of them have visited the School
and we hope that more will do so from time to time as they get the
The Black and Red is considerably curtailed this year on account
of the lack of paper. As a result, we have had to omit many pictures
and items about other matters which would otherwise have appeared
in this issue.
This year, as ever>' year, we are losing a number of Senior boys
whom we are going to miss very much. We do hope that in future
years, they will look back on their years spent here with gratitude
and some pleasant memories.
The increased enrolment of last year has been fairly well main'
tained this year and the Schoolhouse has been taxed to capacity.
We regret to note that since the last issue, we have received
news that three more of our Old Boys have lost their lives on active
service: W. A. Albert, 1937-1941; H. H. Mackenzie, 1938-1939;
J. G. Mackid, 1925-1932. We have also to note the passing of two
Governors of the School: Mr. C. A. Cotterell, who died at Van-
couver last February, and Mr. J. W. Spencer, who died on June 18th.
Also we have to note the death of the Rev. Canon N. E. Smith, who
died on January 31st, 1945, and who for many years was a valued
friend of the School. For many years these gentlemen were interested
in our success and achievement and the School is poorer for their
passing. _G. H. S.

the Masters and to Mr. A. McKinnon for their efficient help on
Last September we welcomed to the Staff Mr. R. G. Thistle waite,
B. A., B. Paed. During the year he has acted as Form Master of
Grade X and assisted in general duties.
We were glad to give a warm welcome to Mr. W. R. G. Wen'
man last November, after an absence of five years during which time
he served with H. M. Forces Overseas.
We are sorry to report that last December, after nearly 20 years
of active and efficient service with the School, Miss E. W. Bowden,
our Matron, was compelled to give up her post on ?ccount of ill
health. We extend a most cordial welcome to Mrs. Proverbs who
joined us last Term.
After the Cadet Inspection on May 7th, the boys of the Corps
were given a 9:00 o'clock leave. After having experienced a very
strenuous day, it was much appreciated.
A Confirmation Service was held at St. Luke's on Sunday,
May 19th. A large congregation attended the Service at which
Shipley I, Shipley II, Perram, Snape, Taylor, Ballantyne, Shaw,
Morgan. West, Wheatley, Howard, and Burnett v.'ere confirmed by
the Lord Bishop of British Columbia. The Bishop gave a very im-
pressive address which no doubt will long be remembered by the boys.
Twice this year we have been compelled to try our hand at fire
fighting. On October 17th, we extinguished a small fire at the Rifle
Range and on .June 13th, the Swimming Tank was threatened by
some wood in the furnace room which had become overheated. On
both occasions, the fire was well under control before the arrival of
the Fire Brigade.
We are grateful to Mr. E. Ball, former Mi listcr o'" Education
for Saskatchewan, for twenty- three Volumes of "'Canada and its
Provinces". The gift forms a very valuable addition to our Library.
The 40th Founder's Day was observed at the School as usual
on October 7th. The Headmaster gave an account of the Founding
of the School and its grov^th through the years. He stressed the ideals
of the Founders and referred to the achievements of the Old Boys of
the School and expressed the hope that the present boys would be
worthy successors. The usual cheers for the Headmaster and the Old
School wen.- then given.
As usual the Armistice Day Service was held at 10:45 in the
Front Hall The Headmaster conducted the service which was at'
tended by all the boys and members of the staff. The names of those
who have lost their lives in the two Wars were read out. Prayers
were offered for the bereaved. Prayers were followed by the laying
of the School Wreath on the Honour Roll by Dalziel.
The Service concluded at 11:00 o'clock with the sounding of
the Last Post by the trumpeters of the Cadet Corps Band, after which
the boys filed past the Honour Roll, leaving by the front door.
We offer our warmest congratulations to our Chairman of the
Board of Governors, Mr. F. E. Winslow, on being awarded the
O. B. E. for long and outstanding service to his fellow citizens during
the War years.
Our best thanks are due to Dr. W. H. Worthington for the
beautiful photographs of Donald and Jack. These have been suitably
framed and now hang in the School dining room.

The proceedings opened with Prayers and the reading of the
Scripture. The Headmaster then gave his Report, outlming the
academic and athletic achievements of the past year.
He then introduced the Dean who in a clear forceful manner
emphasized the importance of a liberal education and the necessity
of applying oneself diligently to those subjects the practical appli-
cation of which was not readily apparent. During the course of his
remarks he stressed the importance of religious training which played
so vital a part in the School curriculum.

Sports Day this year was held on June 1st. In spite of the rain
the previous day, the weather was ideal and a very large number of
parents and friends of the School were present. There was a large
and representative group of Old Boys to witness the event, many of
them having returned from Service Overseas.
The presentation of prizes was made by Dr. G. H. Worthington
of Vancouver, B. C. The Headmaster welcomed the guests and said
that it afforded him great pleasure to have Dr. Worthington present
the prizes. Dr. Worthington addressed the gatheiing and pointed out
to the boys the great advantages which they derived by reason of
attending the School. Mr. Winslow, Chairman of the Board of
Governors, thanked Dr. Worthington for his address and kindly

M. A. GRANT
Winner of the Ker Cup
At a meeting held early in the term G. D. Morant was elected
Captain for the season and O. B. Morgan, a new boy of considerable
promise, was chosen to assist him as Vice-Captain. Only four of
last year's team were available and it was evident that it would be
no easy matter, especially as the season was very short, to bnng the
side up to standard.
Six fixtures were arranged but only iive v.'ere completed, as
heavy rain fell at Shawnigan Lake after 40 minutes of play. Three
matches were won, two drawn, and one lost.
Shaw headed the batting averages, scoring 77 runs for an
average of slightly over 19. Baker had an average of 14 and Morgan
one of 12. Shaw also led the bowlers, his 10 wickets costing him
4.3 runs apiece, but the brunt of the bowling was shared by Morant
and Morgan, the former taking 21 for 140 for an average of 6.67,
and the latter 16 for 101 for a 6.31 average.
The full team for the- year was as foUov^-s: G. D. Morant
(Captain), O. B. Morgan (Vice-Captain), R. G. R. Dalziel, M. A.
Grant, T- D. H. Bryn^Jones, D. V. Shaw, B. P. Baker, S. G. G.
Riley, J. L. Whittome, W. E. Cox, and M. L. Clitford.
The Clayton Cup, which since 1912 has been competed for by
teams within the School, was this year won by DaUiel's team.
Some talent was noticed among the more junior boys: Myers,
Henley, Shipley II and Skillings being particularly keen.
1st XI MATCHES
ScH(X)L VS. Oak B.ay C. C.
The season was opened against Oak Bay, a new club, who
fielded a side mainly composed of boys. Batting first, Oak Bay fared
badly against Morgan, who took 3 for 11, and Shaw, whose figures
flattered him beyond measure, 5 for 3. Morgan showed that he could
hit the loose ball and batted freely and well, while Shaw, who came
in later, hit some very bad bowling hard. The School won by 41

School vs. University School "Incogs"
The "Incogs,*" playing their first game since 1941, were too
strong for the School and won by 54 runs in a twelve-a-side match.
With the exception of Morgan the School bowlers were ineffective
and were treated w-ith scant respect. Morgan took 5 for 32 and the
School fielding was moderate. The earlier School players failed
miserably and Bryn-Jones alone looked like a batsman. Dalziel and
Bennett improved matters late in the innings by vigorous and un-

School vs. Brentwood College
The School were lucky to make 95 and were largely indebted
to Shaw, who, though unorthodox and fortunate to a degree, hit the
hall hard and was undefeated with 52. Clifford, playing his first
game for the 1st XI, helped Shaw to add 27 runs for the last
wicket. The School fielding was poor: catches were missed and the
ground fielding was bad beyond expression. When stumps were
drawn Brentwood, only one run behind and with three wickets still
in hand, had played enterprising cricket and Vv'ere most unlucky not

and Dalziel added 12 by vigorous methods but the School batting
was not impressive. The School won by 18 runs.

School vs. Shawnigan Lake School
The return match at Shawnigan Lake was stopped by rain after
forty minutes play. Shawnigan Lcike lost three wickets for 24 runs,
Morant taking 2 for 8.
School vs. Brentwood College
This, the final match of the season, was played at home, the
School winning on their merits. Morant took 4 Brentwood wickets
for 7 runs in 13 overs and bowled at his best. Morgan took ^ for
18 and Brentwood were out for 36. The School fared little better
and it was only when Morant and Baker were together that any
stand developed. The latter refused to flatter the bowling, and hitting
well, was undefeated with 33 at the close, at which time the School
had scored 55 for 8 wickets.

CHARACTERS OF THE 1st XI
MORANT (Capt.) — Developed splendidly with the ball. BowHng with spirit
and keeping a length, he was the mainstay of the School attack and
never failed. A weak batsman but fair in the field. As a captain he
lacked experience, was rather excitable, and paid insufficient attention
to the placing of his field. Extremely keen and enthusiastic.
MORGAN (Vice-Captain) — A good all rounder. Never really did himself
justice but is a batsman of real promise with some excellent shots in
front of the wicket. His running between the wickets is poor. As a
bowler he kept a fair length but had a tendency to no ball. A sound
fielder with good hands. Enthusiastic to a degree and possesses a know
ledge of the game such as is all too seldom seen.
BRYN'JONES— -A left-hander with an attractive style who has never come
off. The strokes are there but confidence and decision are still lacking.
He is a betten. bowler than he himself believes and could excel in this
department. Fair in the field.
DALZIEL — He can punish loose bowling but his defence is weak and he
possesses no strokes on the off-side. His bowling always lacked sting
and frequently length. Very active in the field and was keen and
enthusiastic at all times.
GRANT — Lethargic and not active enough as a wic! e: keeper and too apt
to use his pads rather than his gloves. Somewhat improved as a bat
and was beginning to develop the necessary confidence.
SHAW — Quick on his feet and h ts the loose ball ha d but possesses little
in the way of defence. Has had success with the ball against tail-end
batsmen but his control of length is faulty and he bowls far too few
good balls to worry a batsman of any experience. Fair in the field and
has proved a useful member of the side.
BAKER — The most improved member of the team and a natural hitter of
real promise. He hits straight and times the ball well on the leg side.
His defence, though not strong, has improved. A fair field and not
without promise as a bowler.
RILEY — As a batsman he had some idea of defense but his attacking strokes
were few. Keen in the held.
WHITTOME — He has come on somewhat with the ball but his bowling
lacks "hostility" as yet. Interest and etfort would bring him wickets.
A bad fielder.
CLIFFORD — Has developed a fair defence and a few strokes on the leg side
but is too prone to "'nibble" on the off side. Very keen in the field
and has good hands. Enthusiastic to a degree and shows real promise.
COX — Quite keen and promising. Strong on the leg side but his defence is
by no means sound. Very fair in the field.

SWIMMING and DIVING
The Swimming and Diving competitions were held on June
10th. Mr. A. McKinnon acted as judge and was accompanied this
year by tw^o excellent swimmers from the Y. M. C. A., who gave
some astounding performances and demonstrations of what can be
done in the various styles of swimming. These same young men
recently went to Eastern Canada and now hold Canadian Cham-
Our own Swimming competition was won by Gilbert who was
awarded the Mathews Cup. The Diving was won by Riley.
The Gym competition was held on March 22nd. As usual Mr.
A. McKinnon acted as judge. He complimented Mr. Taylor, the
instructor, and the boys on their work and judged DaUiel as Captain
of the Gym VIII for 1946. Dalziel was awarded the Hay Croft Cup.
The remaining members of the team w^ere Riley I, Kreger I, Kreger II,
Perram, Bryn-Jones, Riley II, and Morrow.
THE CROSS COUNTRY RUN
This year the Run was held on March 29th; 72 boys took the
run and the winner was Kruger; he covered the course in 25 minutes
and won the Cup presented by the Old Boys.
The best Junior for the third year in succession was Kreger II.
Quite a large number of Juniors participated and made good time.
The finals were held on June 13th but were unable to be com-
pleted on that day on account of rain. They were completed later
and the Singles Championship was won by Perram who defeated
Bryn-Jones 6-4, 6-1. Perram was awarded the Barnacle Cup. The
Doubles were won by Perram and Dakiel who defeated Bryn' Jones
and Morgan 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.
RUGBY FOOTBALL, 1945-46
With nine members of last year's team available, prospects for
the 1945-46 season were promising. It was soon evident, however,
that the knowledge of the game possessed by many was extremely
sketchy and that in the vital positions, at half and in the centre,
there were definite weaknesses. These weaknesses were never eradi'
cated, with the result that behind the scrum the team never showed
to advantage and time and again only the lion-hearted play of Dalziel
saved them from eclipse. Among the forwards there was much talent
and by mid'season a fairly well balanced pack, particularly strong
in the "'loose,'''' rounded into shape.
Twelve matches were played by the 1st X'V, seven of which
were won and five lost.
The official team for the season was as follows: R. G. R. Dalziel
(Capt.), R W. Bissett (Vice-Capt.), P. M. Perram, W. M. Riley,
M. R Vidler, R. W. Duncan, G. D. Morant, J. D. H. Bryn-Jones,
M. A. Grant, R. R. Badda, D. M. Kreger, F. E S. Atkins, J. O.
Mothersill, D. H. Francis, and K. W. Bennett.
The 2nd X'V played six matches, three of which were won, two
lost and one drawn. Some fair talent was revealed, particulary among
the forwards, where McLarty, McLellan and Morrison were pro'
minent. Here again lack of sound knowledge was evident and the
backs were weak.
In addition to the 1st and 2nd teams a llO'lb. team was organ-
ized and matches we're played with Fairbridge Farm School, Oaklands
School, and on a slightly different weight basis, with Shawnigan Lake
School. In this group were players of real promise who should be
outstanding in the more senior teams in the near future.
THE RUGBY XV
Kreger I, Mothersill, Morant, McLarty, Perram, Duncan, Atkins, Bennett,
Grant, Bissett, DaUiel, Riley I, Vidler,
FIRST FIFTEEN MATCHES
School vs. Victoria High School
The School opened the season at Victoria High School, where
they were successful by the only try scored.
The ground was heavy and the game was a forward one. The
School pack, though outweighed, managed to give the backs a fair
share of the ball but poor passing spoilt many a promising movement.
After a period of defensive play the School exerted pressure and
just before half time Perram all but scored. He was injured, however,
and did not appear after half time.
The game was very even after the restart v.'ith little outstanding
play by cither side, although Badda put in some useful work for the
School on the wdng. Shortly before the end the School forwards
carried the ball over for the only score of the game.
School vs. Brentwood College
This game was played at Brentwood on Nov. 10th and resulted
in a win for the home team by the only try scored.
Rain fell throughout and play was largely of a forward nature.
Brentwood had a decided advantage in the first half but though the
School were hard pressed, they succeeded in holding out until half
time. As the whistle blew, Perram, the School outside half, was in-
jured and following the resumption of play, Brentwood sportingly
dropped a man.
The School did better in the second half and had a fair share
of the game, hut the only score came in the last five minutes when
bad tackling let a Brentwood player in :t the flag for an unconverted
The School backs were weak all round and the tackling of the
team as a whole was poor. The work of the School forwards, of
whom Stephenson was by far the best, was inferior to that of their
opponents both in the loose and in the line out.
School vs. Brentwood College
The home game against Brentwood College was played under
perfect weather conditions and resulted in a win for the School by
two goals, a penalty goal, and a try (16 pts.) to a goal (5 pts.).
Dalziel opened the scoring for the School after about ten minutes
play making no mistake with a penalty kick from inside the Brent-
wood twenty-five. At this stage, Brentv.ood were more convincing
behind the scrum but the School forv.ards were superior in the loose
and fully held their own in the tight. Shortly before half time, the
School went further in front when Kreger I picked up a loose ball
inside the Brentwood tweny-five and dodged his way over at the flag.
Dahiel failed to convert. After the r:sumption play contin'ied to b"
very even and for the most part between the two twenty-fives until
Perram, taking advantage o^ a Brentwood fumbk near the half v.ay
line, gathered, ran around the opposition ?nd cut in to score between
the posts. Dalziel converted and the School led 11-0. This lead v,'as
increased when Dalziel, taking a prss from Perram on the half wav
line and using his great speed, ran around the opposing backs and
down the wing to score a grand try at the flag for Morant to add
the extra points with a splendid kick. Late in the game, bad tackling
allowed a Brentwood player to cross at the flag and score between the
posts. Goal was kicked and the School won 16-5.
Although without two of their regular members, the School
played keen, robust football: the forwards were fast on the ball and
the tackling was greatly improved. The backs were not very con-
vincing but took full advantage of mistakes by the opposition. Ste-
phenson, Francis and Bennett were the pick of the forw^ards while
Dalziel was easily the most effective of the backs. Both newcomers,
Riley II at scrum half, and Br>'n-Jones at full back showed to advan-
tage in their first game for the School.
School vs. 0.\k B.\y High School
The School were not at full strength for their game against
Oak Bay High School at Cranmore Road, but their form was very
disappointing and Oak Bay won 12-3.
The Oak Bay forw^ards were very keen and vigorous in the
loose completely outplaying the School and making constructive work
by the School backs ver>' difiicult by their "kick and run" tactics.
From scrambles near the School line Oak Bay scored two tries in
each half: none were converted. The School replied in the second
halt when Bissett, the scrum half, ran through on his own from the
Oak Bay twenty-five to provide one of the few bright spots in a very
poor game. Morant failed to convert. Although Dalziel was always
dangerous and Kreger I made one good run, the School backs were
far from happy, and though the tackling of the team showed some
improvement, the handling and kicking left much to be desired.
School vs. Shawnigan Lake School
The School were too strong for their opponents at Shawnigan
Lake and won by six tries and a goal (23 pts.) to nil.
The general calibre of play w^as not good and little of a con-
structive nature was shown by either team. Kreger I opened the
scoring early in the game and both Dahiel and Perram added tries
before half time when the School led 9-0.
Following the change over, play was somewhat more spirited.
Dalziel was the first to score; then came two quick tries by Perram,
the second after clever use of the "dummy". Duncan finished the
scoring vvhen he snapped up a loose ball and ran through on his own,
a just reward for keen forward play. The place kicking was poor,
Morant being the only one to kick goal though Riley I, Dalziel,
Perram and Francis also tried their hands. The School three-quarters,
of whom Dalziel and Perram were the best, were never together, and
the halves were far too slow. Stephenson, Duncan and Vidler were
the pick of the forwards.
School vs. Royal N.wal College (2nd XV)
Weather and ground conditions were excellent and some very
open football was expected. Unfortunately, this did not prove to be
the case, as the College backs favoured the shortkick, and the running
and passing of the School three-quarters was so poor that they pro-
fited little from a fair share of a dry ball.
Early in the game Dalziel took a pass from Perram and went
through the centre on his own from half way to score between the
posts. This try was purely the result of DalziePs own great speed and
determination and was not brought about by any constructive work
by the backs. Morant failed to convert. A little later Badda forced
himself into the clear on the right wing but with only the full back
to beat his scoring pass to Perram was too long delayed and forward.
Play was of a ver>' even nature until shortly before half time the
Naval College were awarded a penalty thirty yards out and almost
on the touch line from which spot a splendid penalty goal was kicked.
Immediately after play was resumed some very bad handling in
the College twenty-five and some keen and vigorous play by Duncan
resulted in this player beating the opposition to the ball after a Col-
lege man had dropped a pass in his own in-goal. Riley I failed to add
the extra points. The School increased their lead when Riley I, having
dribbled a loose ball some yards, gathered, and when tackled near the
line, gave to Morant, who forced his way over for a try which
Dalziel turned into a goal. Towards the end, the College applied
pressure and for some time play was in the School twenty-five. No
further score resulted, however, and the School v. on a well-contested
Of the School forwards, Stephenson, was outstanding and re-
ceived good support from Vidler and Duncan who were excellent
in the loose. Bissett was too slow at the base of the scrum. Riley I
and Perram were not happy either in attack or defence, and Dalziel
alone appeared capable of scoring a try or acting resolutely when
School vs. Brentwood College
Brentwood, playing at home, were too clever for the School in
this, the third game of the season between the schools.
Fortune favoured the School when in the first minute a faulty
kick by a Brentwood player placed the ball in the hands of Badda,
the School right wing. Badda ran strongly to v.'ithin five yards of
the Brentwood line, where he was tackled, and Duncan, who was
up in support, scooped up the loose ball and fell over near the
corner for a try which Morant failed to improve.
Brentwood then attacked strongly and, well-served by two good
halves, their outsides were always dangerous. Before half time two
unconverted tries had been scored and this advantage would have
been greatly increased but for the splendid tackling of Dalziel whose
defensive play was of a high order. The School forwards played
fairly well, and the backs had their chances, but their handling was
faulty and opportunities were thrown away.
After the change over both sides played vigorous football but
Brentwood were always more constructive and despite heroic efforts
by Dalziel increased their lead by a goal late in the game and won
by two tries and a goal (11 pts.) to a try (3 pts.).
The School forwards more or less held their own throughout
though their packing in the loose was inferior to their opponents.
Once again the School backs were most unconvincing in attack and
with the exception of DaUiel and Badda defended badly.
School vs. Victoria High School
The game was played at Victoria High School and resulted in
a win for the home team by a goal and a try (8 pts.) to a try (3 pts.).
During the first half the High School had the better of the
game but only managed to score once when bad tackling allowed
their right wing to cross at the flag and to score between the posts.
The tr^^ was converted. The School replied shortly before half time
when, following a scrum in midfield, Dalziel, using his great speed
and determination, beat man after man to score a try which Morant
failed to improve.
After half time the School played with spirit and had rather
more of the game, but the forwords were always struggling to hold
their own against taller and heavier men. In consequence the School
backa had ver>' tew opportunities and the halves were not quiek or
clever enough to turn them to advantage. The High School increased
their lead when one of their backs forced himself over during a
scramble on the School line but the try was not converted. In the
closing minutes the School exerted strong pressure: both Perram and
Badda were all but over and the best chance of the day was ruined
when Grant's vital pass to Perram was untakeable. Little good
football was played, but both sides were keen and the game was
robust to a degree Of the School forwards Vidler, Francis and
Riley I were prominent, while of the backs Perram showed that given
running room he could be dangerous, and Dalziel was his determined
School vs. Brentwood College
This, the fourth game of the season between the two teams re-
sulted in a win for the School by the odd try in three.
The ground was heavy and the ball v^^et but no rain fell during
the game and both sides handled fairly well and play was extremely
keen and vigorous throughout.
From the opening whistle the School exerted pressure and main-
tained It until half time. The forwards fully held the Brentwood
pack in the line out and the tight and were deiinitely superior in the
loose where they were far quicker on the ball. Vidler was very
prominent for the School in the loose and was a constant source of
worry to the Brentwood centres and halves. The School backs while
not as sound as their opponents, were definitely more thrustful. Two
good chances were lost when first Grant and then Perram w^ent right
through the centre and only lack of support prevented certain tries
Dalziel frequently tested the opposing full back with high punts and
on at least one occasion a try almost resulted. Shortly before half
time, following a scrum on the Brentwood line, the forwards pushed
their opponents over and Duncan scored a try which Morant failed
After the breather the School continued to press and Dalziel
increased the lead with a typical determined dash down the left wing.
Riley I failed to convert. Brentwood then rallied and for the rest of
the game fully held their own. Their wings were always dangerous
but the School tackling, particularly that of Riley I and Dalziel, was
keen and sure. Perram and Badda also played good defensive football
at this stage. Shortly before the end Brentwood scored a very nice
try on the left wing at the flag. This try was not converted and the
School won a fine game 6-5.
The School team gave a very spirited and improved display.
The improvement was especially noticeable behind the scrum where
Grant played with new dash and confidence and Perram gave a
pleasing display both in attack and defense. Dalziel gave his usual
lion-hearted exhibition, v^'hile Riley I and Badda on the wangs held
difiicult opponents well.
School vs. A Royal Canadl^n Naval College Team
The School, without Colours, were too strong for a team from
the Naval College and won by three goals, a penalty goal, and a
try (21 pts.) to a penalty goal and two tries (9 pts.).
Ground and weather conditions were good and the game was
very open. Kreger I and Morrison scored tries in the opening half
while Morant converted Morrison's try and was also successful from
a penalty. The College replied with two tries and the School led
11-6 at half time.
After the restart Duncan put the School further ahead and
Grant added the final try shortly before the end. This last try was
by far the best of the game and came when Perram, by clever use of
the '"dummy,'' put himself through the centre, drew the fullback
and gave Grant, who was well up in support, a scoring pass. Morant,
who kicked well throughout, converted both tries. The College
failed to cross the School line during the second half, but were sue
cessful Vv'ith a penalty given agamst the School for "feet up". The
School forwards were too active for the opposing pack and gave the
outsides many opportunities. The backs, v;ithout Dalziel, v^'ere not
convincing, but Grant displayed improved form and Perram once
again proved himself the most intelligent three-quarter in the School.
School vs. Chilliw.ack High School
The game with Chilliwack High School was played at home.
B. Watt, a member of last year's School side, was instrumental in
arranging the fixture and is to be warmly commended, not only for
his play, which was of a high order, but for his enthusiasm and
keenness in carrying his knowledge of football to his new school and
furthering its advancement there.
For some time play was fairly even but gradually the School
gained control and Chilliwack was hard pressed. The School backs
finished badly, however, and time and again promising movements
were ruined. In addition Chilliwack defended well. Perram and
Dalziel combined well several times but it was Badda who opened the
scoring when he crossed at the flag. Morant failed to convert.
After the resumption the School controlled the game completely
but the backs were never together and the Chilliwack defense held
until shortly before the end when Francis, who had a good match,
fought his way over from a line out. Morant failed to convert and
the School won 6-0.
ChilUwack were a heavy side, played vigorous football and
defended well. The School, though the better side, threw their
chances away, and their backs, including Dakiel, gave a poor display.
, School vs. Old Boys
This, the final match of the season, was played at the School
and resulted in a win for the Old Boys by three goals and a try
(18 pts.) to 0.
The Old Boyj with Gibbs, the Victoria Rep Team captain, at
centre three-quarter, were particulary strong behind the scrum. Their
pack, well led by Corry, a prominent forward on this year's Pro-
vincial Champions, Varsity Thundcrhirds, fully held their own with
the School scrum who were without Riley I and Francis.
After a spell of fairly even play the Old Boys opened the
scoring when R. DaUiel caught the School napping going over on
the blind side follovvang a scrum near the School line. The try was
scored between the posts and Williams added the extra points. A
little later Corry shook oif several School tacklers in a determined
run and scored far out. Williams failed to convert.
After the change over, with the wind at their backs, the School
for a short time e.\erted pressure. The backs showed little of a con-
structive nature, however, and after Morant was wide with two
penalty kicks, the Old Boys again took command. R. Dalziel scored
his second trv far our V'/hen he forced his way over after picking up a
loose ball: irresolute tackling was responsible for this try which
Williams goaled with a magnificent kick. The School Vv'ere saved
on two occarions, once by Bryn-Jones Vv'hen he brought Gibbs down
when this dangerous player was in the clear, and once by Kreger I
who bundled Creer>' into touch at a critical moment. The Old Boys
were not to be denied, however, and Gillies, running strongly on the
right wing, crossed at che flag and scored between the posts for Boak
to add the extra points.
The Old Boys, who were a young team, gave a very creditable
performance: they played spirited, and at times clever football, and
gave the School a lesson in passing and handling which was badly
The School played hard but were outclassed. Dalziel tackled
well and received fair support from Badda and Kreger I, but the
halves, Bissett and Grant, v.^ere overshadowed by their opposite
numbers. The forwards held their own, but Riley I and Francis v.'ere

CHARACTERS of the FIRST XV
DALZIEL (Captain and Centre Three-quarter) — Really better suited to the
wing position he combined poorly, but his speed and determination
made him a most effective player and a consistent scorer. His kick-
ing was weak, but he was fearless in face of forwards and his tackling
was beyond praise. Captained the side with enthusiasm and set a
splendid example by his spirited and courageous play.
BISSETT (Vice-Captain and Scrum Half) — Keen, but was too slow and
clumsy and never developed an understanding with his stand-off half.
His defensive kicking was useful at times and he possessed a good
knowledge of the game. A poor tackle.
BR YN- JONES (Full-back) — Lacks experience as yet but has made a very
promising start. Handles fairly well but is slow to clear and is none
too happy in face of forward rushes. A very vigorous and effective
PERRAM( Centre Three-quarter) — A promising centre who played the game
intelligently and unselfishly. He possessed good hands, a useful
"dummy,'" a fair turn of speed, and his tackling has improved con-
siderably. Weak in face of forwards with the hall at ther feet, and
made little use of his kicking.
GRANT (Stand-off half) — Lacks a sound knowledge of the game but has
come on considerably. His handling and passing were very faulty and
he had no understanding with his scrum-half. Improved as a tackle,
possesses courage and is keen to learn.
BADDA (Wing Three-quarter) — New to the game but is keen and shows
promise. A detcnnined runner and a good tackle.
KREGER I (Wing Three-quarter) — Played some useful games and, given
enough ground in which to move, is hard to stop. His tackling has
improved considerably but in general his play is most inconsistent. He
must learn to face forwards and to improve his kicking which is very
MOTHERSILL — A useful forward in the "tight": none too strong in the
"loose" and the line out. Has little idea of combination as yet.
ATKINS — A keen and vigorous forward who filled the position of "hook"
in a promising manner. Excelled in the "loose" and was a fair tackle.
Rather excitable and prone to commit minor infringements.
MORANT — Rather tall for a front-rank man but played fairly well in the
"tight". Excellent in the "loose" with the ball at his feet, and was
always prominent in any short passing among the pack. His play in
the line out and his tackling are still weak. Came on splendidly as
an all-round kick and shows real promise in this department.
RILEV I — Played both as a three-quarter and as a forward, and, though hap-
pier in the latter position, performed creditably in both. An honest
worker both in the "tight" and in the "loose". Combined poorly and
was- caught with the ball too often, but his thrust and determination
made him a dangerous man near the line. A magnificent tackle.
FRANCIS — A good second row man who applied his weight well in the
scrum and used his height to advantage in the line out. A vigorous
player he was extremely dangerous near the opposing goal line, but he
is still far too prone to commit minor infringements.
VIDLER — A very valuable back row forward. Always on the ball in the
"loose" and a tireless worker who played the game with zest and en-
thusiasm and never disappointed. A weak tackle as yet and must
improve in this important phase of the game.
DUNCAN — An excellent wing forward whose work in the "loose" was of
a high order. Always hunting for tries and was extremely dangerous
near the opposing line. A weak tackle and must improve in this
BENNET — Made an excellent start as a wing forward. Keen, unselfish, and
revelled in the game. A magnificent tackle and an extremely promising
footballer in every way.
THE CADET CORPS
The following appointments were sanctioned hy the Head-
Cadet Captain M. Grant
Cadet Lieutenant R. W. Bissett
Cadet Lieutenant P. Perram
Cadet Company Sgt. -Major ..... McLarty
Cadet Conipany Q. M. S Moilliet
Our activities in this direction were carried on as usual, only in
a somewhat modified form. During the war years we endeavoured to
follow the official courses laid down by N. D. H. Q., but owing to
the excessive in-roads it made on our spare time, the work was
drastically curtailed and such items as signalling, knotting, and
First Aid were ruled out.
Early in the Xmas term two old members of the School, Bissett
and Stephenson I, re-joined us after having put in a year's training
with the Regular Army. We benefited greatly from their up-to-date
knowledge, Stephenson helping with the P. T. and Bissett with the
Our early efforts at Company Drill were seriously hampered by
the weather, which seemed to take a delight in turning on a deluge
each Wednesday. Of the first 20 Wednesdays of the year only t
were fine enough for outside work. As a result our Cadet activii:ies
had to be carried on in either the Gym. or in No. 3 Classroom. This
might have become tedious in the extreme had it not been for the
timely arrival of outside help.
On Nov. 21st we were accorded a practical demonstration of
the uses of the "Walkie-Talkie"; this was followed by a motion
picture film portraying its uses in the Field, and the dire results that
might accrue from its mis-use. Developments in Radar were also
shown and in such a way that even the youngest member of the Corps
was able to digest the priciples of this latest invention. We extend
our ver>' sincere thanks to Sgt. -Major McKinnon who was responsible
for this very interesting break in our routine.
On Jan. 16 Lieut. P. Harrison arrived in the nick of time and
for an hour extemporized on his experiences while on "Operational
Flying". As a lecturer we congratulate him. The information he
imparted was of a very practical nature; the serious side of flying
was duly stressed and throughout the talk there ran a keen sense
of humour. We hope he will visit us again.
Lieut. W. R. Batten, M. C, helped out on another atrociously
wet Wednesday. This time we obtained first-hand information on
the work of the Armoured Car Division, particulary in the actions
that centered around Caen and Falaise. We were not able to eluci-
date the occasion during which he won the M. C. but we gather
that it was during the fighting in Holland. Heartiest congratulations.
Major Ransome, Asst. Cadet Officer for this area, visited us
on Feb. 16, bringing with him moving pictures of G. L's in training,
the Youth Movement that is being inaugurated in U. S. A. and the
various progressive steps that have been made m the World of
Science since 1939. This visit, made at no inconsiderable incon-
venience, was greatly appreciated by all.
The first 10 days of the Summer term found us \ orking over-
time in an effort to achieve that standard of proficic/xy which has
now become tradition. In this work Capt. Grant is to be highly com-
mended for having brought the Corps successfiiUy through a year
that did not lend itself kindly.
By dint of daily practice the Eand under the guidance of the
Headmaster and Sgt. Dalziel proved itself to be of inestimable value
especially during the latter days of training, when our marching
needed much material assistance.
Our Annual Inspection took place on the arcernoon of May 6.
For this event we were blessed with perfect weather and an unusually
large gathering of parents and guests. These f.ictors undoubtedly
helped in bringing our Ceremonial, etc., up to the high standard that
we strive to attain. Major Ransome, the Inspecting Officer, seemed
definitely satisfied with the work that had been covered during the
year and commended all on their fine display. In his few brief v.'ords
at the close of the Ceremony, he stressed the fact that the Cadet Corps
Training was in no way an inducement for the Youth of the Country
to become militar>'-minded or even to instil a preference for things
militar>% but that its purpose was to inculcate a spirit of teamwork,
and at the same time to exert a degree of discipline, which, although
distasteful to most, was beneficial to all. On his recommendation the
Headmaster granted a general Leave to all members of the Corps.
As usual we attended Divine Service at St. Luke's Church on the
evening of June 16. This Ser\'ice, first held in 1942, was brought
into being by the stress and dangers of war; despite the fact that we
are now at peace its significance still stands. We are grateful to the
Rector for his timely message on that occasion.

A most unfortunate epidemic of "Pink-Eye" during the Easter
term played havoc with the shootmg averages of certain members of
the Corps. Despite this annoyance, 6 "Possibles" were attained during
the course of the year, (the marksmen being Grant, Perram, Vidler,
Bissett, Cox and Shipleyll), while on 41 other occasions scores 95
and over were registered.
Two teams of 1 1 each were entered in the D. C. R. A. com-
petition, which was fired during Jan., Feb., and Mar. The scores
below would indicate that the School still possessed Shots comparable
with those of 1942 and that there are others, who with further prac-
tice and experience will prove formidable. Unfortunately time did
not allow us to enter in other matches.

The Harvey Memorial Rifle, for the best shot in the School,
and the Breadwood Cup fo'- the best Intermediate were both won
by D. Davison, who througoat the year did excellent work.
Our congratulations go to Clifford I on winning the D. C. R. A.
Cup. Although of tender years he has represented the School for
the past 3 years and is now coming into his own.
The best Junior is undoubtedly Stewart. He has put up some
very high scores and we expect him to help us out in the near future.
OLD BOYS NOTES
The Annual Meeting was held at the School on May 16. There
was a fair attendance and the following officers were elected: Presi-
dent, W. J. R. Speers; Vice-President (Victoria), F. N. Cabeldu:
Honorary Secretary, W. R. G. Wenman.
The Old Boys' Annual Dinner was held at the Union Club on
June 1st. The Headmaster spoke briefly, and then followed a most
interesting talk by Captain W. B. Creery, C. B. E., R. C. N., Officer
Commanding Royal Canadian Naval College. Capt. Creery spoke
of his experiences while in command of H. M. C. S. Prince Robert
with particular reference to the formal surrender of Hong Kong by
the Japanese, upon which occasion he had represented Canada. Capt.
Creery mentioned a happy meeting with a fellow Old Boy, C. D. D.
Stanley, who entertained him royally in Honolulu.
The University School "Incogs" Cricket Club, which had not
functioned since 1941, came to life again this year. On the last
Saturday in May they proved too strong for the School and won
by 54 runs. The side included such ancients as R. L. Challoner, W. J.
R. Peers, J. D. Inverarity, W. R. G. Wenman and H. P. H. Holt,
and such moderns as J. A. Gibbs, A. M. Cupples, and J. A. Richard-
son. A. G. Tisdall, F. G. Skillings and R. H. Tye completed the
team. Peers was top scorer with 40, while Tye made 28, showing
that a wound and a spell in a German hospital had affected him little.
The Old Boys also proved too strong for the School on the foot'
ball field. The side was young, and nine members came from Van-
couver and one from Seattle to play. Victoria Old Boys completed
the side Which won 18-0. Congratulations to those who participated
and made this very worthwhile fixture possible.
Old Boys will be interested to hear that H. B. Renwick has been
appointed Traffic and Sales Manager for United Air Lines in
Old Boys of more ancient vintage will be glad to know that
D. M. W. Grubb has come back to Victoria as Manager of the
Imperial Bank. "Des" has spent most of his banking life in Winni-
peg, Edmonton, and in Regina where he was for some time a pro-
minent member of the Regina Rough Riders.
Among the new honorary aides-de-camp recently appointed by
the Governor-General were Capt. W. B. Creery, C. B. E. and Cmdr.
K. C. McRae: both represent the Navy.
Brock Whitney has retired from the R. C. A. F. and has as-
sumed control of the jewelry business established in Victoria in 1907
by his father, the late Mr. J. M. Whitney.
In the last issue of the "Black and Red" Lieut. W. A. Albert
was reported as missing. Word has since been received to the effect
that the U. S. War Department have noticed his parents that he is
officially presumed dead. Albert was awarded the Air Medal for
"meritorious achievement and fearless and unselfish devotion to duty".
The parents of R. M. Wallis who was killed in action Jan. 29,
1945, have received a communication to the effect that their son
had been "Posthumously awarded the Operational Wings of the

In the War 1914-1918 over 200 Old Boys of University School
served with H. M. Forces of whom not less than 67 gave their lives
and 2 1 were awarded decorations.
In the War 1939-1945. well over 400 Old Boys are known to
have served, of whom at least 40 have paid the supreme sacrifice and
44 decorations, including one V. C.. have been awarded.
The Governors of the School have now definitely decided that
this oustanding service and sacrifice made by the Old Boys of the
School in both Wars, shall be recognized by the building of an
Assembly Hall attached to the main School House building.
It is felt that the erection of such a Memorial will not only be a constant
reminder of such service but an acquisition which has become necessary and
which will be an inspiration to future generations of boys. The proposal has
been heartily endorsed by the Old Boys Association.
The Building will be of brick construction and of a design which will
conform to the general outline of the School House and will be erected over
the present shower rooms. The lower storey will be used for much needed
new locker rooms with direct access to the showers. On the following pages,
plans of both upper and lower floors are shown.
A trust Fund was opened last August and up to the present time, a
sum of approximately $2,500.00 has been received.
The estimated approximate cost of this Building is $13,000.00, including
complete furnishings. It is sincerely hoped that during the coming year, an
encouraging number of further contributions will be received in order that
a start may be made next summer. Many have already made small contribu-
tions and expressed their intention of giving further help from time to time.
In this connection it should be remembered that contributions will qualify as
Charitable Donations within the meaning of the Income Tax Act.
Any "contribution large or small will be gratefully received. Cheques
should be made out to the Headmaster who will personally undertake prompt
acknowledgement and issue of the official printed receipt for the purpose of
ExiJ-y. CoNcB-tjE SV/vLic
