Hugh Martin was a 1940 graduate of Room 19. He went on to do a stint at Cape Lazo then went to the aeradio side of the house, spending time at Fort Nelson.    His daughter-in-law contacted me in August/14 and offered some of his Room 19 photos.
Hugh held Walter Lambert, the head instructor, in high regard as did many of the graduates, even to the point of keeping this photo of Mr. Lambert on his garage wall.

   This a 4.5 meg file and, depending upon connection speed, may take a few moments to open up. Left it this way so the photo can be expanded for a clearer look at the faces.
   Hugh Martin is marked on the left hand stairs. I did spot Ray Burge and Dick Lobb.  Lambert himself had been dead for almost 20 years.
   In the summer of 1940 the class was photographed at Walter Lambert's house in North Vancouver.
   The names are noted in an image below.
