This photograph was taken on the occasion of a visit by the cadets to Christchurch, possibly to drill at the Christchurch Exhibition. They have been identified as John Carson, Charles 'Chas' Adams and Dan Sexton. Originally the Cadet movement, run in schools, was entirely controlled by the Headmaster and the Army was not involved. However, the Education Act of 1902 resulted in most secondary schools forming cadet units and the Army became directly involved in the cadets training following their Boer War participation.
