It was fairly common practice for young men from isolated areas to join and return with patrols to administrative centres for their ‘education’. He worked as a labourer, a general assistant with the Agriculture Department, an interpreter on occasions, and was eventually trained to operate and maintain the power generators|
one of the most responsible and technical jobs in the town.
