Middletown Observation Post 10-B: Schedule of Watches
St. Andrew's School participated with the town of Middletown in the Aircraft Warning Service for a 20-month period during World War II from 1941-1943. The School Tower (located on the Gym) was used for observation watches. This Schedule of Watches document contains a daily hourly schedule of those participating in the watches held at the School Tower.

Though the document is undated, a reference is made in the 1942 "Report of the Headmaster to the Board of Trustees" to the Aircraft Warning Service's Observation Post maintaining "two observers on the School tower, on two-hour shifts."

During the late summer or fall of 1943 (reference "Report of the Headmaster to the Board of Trustees 1942-1942"), the observation watches were moved off of the St. Andrew's campus and were conducted from a tower constructed on what is now East Cochran Street in Middletown.

This item is on extended loan to the Middletown Historical Society for its exhibit "Middletown Goes to War" (May 2014).
