Well, Tony, as I've passed on through a few years, I've also noted that
youth are getting older younger. Not sure exactly why God does that to us.
My other guess would be that this was a Council contingent band, that maybe
some of the kids were Explorers (see note, above) and to keep the Uniforms

district-type would never do such a thing) decided to go with the Explorer
Given time, other guesses will appear.
