The Hon. F. J. Rolleston, Acting Minister of Railways, recently paid a visit to the Railway Board, and the various Branches of the Department, also to the Cadet Training School.
Mr. Bracefield, Officer in Charge, explained to the Minister the method of training and indicated the class of work performed by the lads.
Mr. Rolleston, who showed keen interest in the work, paid a tribute to Mr. Bracefield and his staff for the manner in which the lads were being trained.
Before leaving the School Mr. Rolleston addressed the Cadets and pointed out to them the necessity of applying themselves thoroughly to the training which was being offered, and counselled them to take heed of the advice and instructions given. By so doing they would become valuable officers in an important service in this country.
