3. Oxford cadets. This publicity photo is included in an appendix to “A History of the American Air Service in Great Britain,” where it is captioned “First detachment of American Flying cadets in England, marching to their billets.” However, the man marching alongside on the far left appears to be Elliott White Springs, which suggest this is actually the second (“Italian”) detachment. Note the new headgear, replacing the old campaign hats. The white bands mark the men as cadets.
