Late 1930's just before WWII.

Bunch of new cadets at a military school are having lunch.

The head cheese just walked in and told them about the invasion of Poland or some similar world news.

I can see a lot of pots and also packages of some sort. Rations? Also, there are letters printed on the flags hung on the wall, but I can't make out what they are. They must be a clue.

Default Czechoslovakian Army Unit

The photo was taken in December 1938 in Czechoslovakia. My father is the first person in the 3rd row from the left and closest to the camera. The Czechoslovakian army was mobilized in 1938 to counter Hitler's threat. In September 1938 Hitler forces Czechoslovakia to give up the Sudetenland. Britainís Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, agreed to Hitlerís demands. The Czechoslovakian army was demobilized in 1939 after the collapse of Czechoslovakia - the last and only democracy in Europe in 1938.

People have only the power we grant them, something Chamberlain never quite understood.
