Later exploits

Millard Lewis became a major general in the U.S. Army Air Corps, and later the Air Force. Capt. David D. Hedekin commanded the Headquarters Company at Fort McPherson, Georgia, from 1936 until 1938 - when he was killed when playing in a polo tournament. The parade field at Fort McPherson now bears his name.

Uniform Requirements..

A sweater with an "M" on the front.. sewn, stapled or nailed was not specified.

Bowling team at work was required to have "team shirts", they went to Sears and bought Hawaiian shirts, MATCHING Hawaiian shirts

Back row second from right

is a dead ringer for Kevin Wiseman.

I think he might be the Reginald of this bunch. Or the Bertram.

Reading faces

The upper left two guys are trying hard to suppress a smile. The guy on the right is daydreaming about acing the head of the guy on the bottom right.

Good old Dooley

Hey wait a minute, that's not Dooley Wilson from Casablanca. Like the M Squad reference Dave. Takes me back to the 50's TV show of M Squad with Lee Marvin as Lt. Ballinger of the Chicago Police. Guess they were ahead of their time. Today they would be called "special units" I suppose.

Suburban League Champs

The Montrose Club tennis squad won the Suburban League series of 1925 with a record of 60 victories and 10 defeats. Players included: David D. Hedekin, Gwynn King, Millard Lewis, W.M. Hoffman and Dooley Mitchell.


Where's Lee Marvin?

I bet at least one of them

is named Reginald -- "Reggie" to his friends.
