Ghostly army of officers-to-be. Members of the cadet corps at St. Andrew's College, a private boys' school in Aurora, wore gas masks and marched through clouds of make-believe poison gas for their annual inspection in May, 1942. Things were looking their gloomiest for the Allied Forces at that time, although significant victories came later in the year. Military matters played a significant role in college routine. Aurora at the time was a small manufacturing community of 2,800.
