Yes, I dimly remember that. Marching to chapel was abolished in my first term, Seaman obviously hated it. (Although the forming two deep on the approach to chapel was never really anything more than an informal merging.)postwarblue wrote:.. 'Form Two Deep' .. except when parading to chapel when the House Captain would raise his right arm and then drop it to give the signal, presumably to prevent an unseemly bellow being heard within.
I remember my nursemaid telling me on my first day that on approaching the dining-hall door, I'd hear someone shout what sounded like "form three" but was in fact "form t'deep".
By this time (mid 50s) the Army had long since given up marching in fours, so these commands were a left-over.
