Mike Spack comments: "The beds had to be made up in a particular way and there were inspections of the hut where we slept some 30 or 40 of us.  Most of us learned quickly how to fold up our pants at bedtime and place them carefully under the mattress.  A great way to keep a sharp crease in our trousers!  We were one of many many flights of males, more of us boys trying to become adults and each flight housed in one hut."
