TYNDALL'S G UNNERY SCHOOL Men who have been station e d at Tyndall for only two o r three m o nths find it difficult to b elieve that, had they been here in February they would have seen nothing but empt y buildings where today t hey find the b usy. college l i k e atmosphere o f the Gunnery School. At the time t hat Tyndall F ield s G u n nery School was bein g planne d a n d organized. there was very little t h e t could be used as a g u i de, for the t w o other similar schools in the u s. were also-in t h e e m b r y o nic stage. Howev e r the best methods and ideas of the two U S. were combined with the training de .ta obt ained from the British Gunnery School s and Tyndall's first class o f fut u r e e;uru.ters began training i n mid-Febr u ary. It w a s planned by the Director of Training that the men who sl10wed the most a ptitude in this first class, b e selected and be used as the nucleus for an instructors group for t h e classe s that followed. The i n structors for the first class were chosen from men on the Field who had comp leted courses in armamt:Jnt schools and could be depended upon to convey their know ledge in an intelligent manner to t heir stlJdents. The m e n w h o demonstrated that they were c apable of instrllcting classes were retained along with those men of t h e fjrst two classes who showed un usual ability and these men form the present instruc t ors staff. The story beh i n d the a.ctue.l prepara tion for these courses is one of crea tive effort o n the part of individual officers a n d e n listed men, w h o planned and devised methods and devices for training that could be easily grasped and yet highly instructive. ally all of the prese n t written mater ial being used has bee n compo unded by the members of T;y11dall F ield 1 s Depart ment of Training These men, w ho, u n der the c01runa.nd of Colonel Maxwell a n d under the s uper visio n of Lt. C o l Daniel Jenkins, have contributed t o the success of the training ; prog ram, ean be justly proud of their pa r t in establishing Tyndall Field's reputation as the n a t ion's leading g u nnery school. / ..
