Explanation of photos - The top photo is of Piers as a young officer. His daughter said he'd love to be remembered like this! The one below was taken in 1935.  He is on the left (without the gas mask) - already in Army uniform! He would have been eleven at the time so probably a year before he started at Bradfield.  He joined the Army as soon as he could.
