Cadet’s drawing
This pencil drawing of a house by a river
was drawn by one of the cadets
at Addiscombe Military College.

The cadets came from the upper classes
and were not necessarily local to Croydon.

The college trained cadets to become
engineers and surveyors,
as well as soldiers,
for the East India Company,
so drawing would be a useful skill.
