Boars Head Feast/Lighting the Vigil Candle

Thursday evening, the school hosted its 72nd (I think) Annual Boars Head Feast. For those of you who aren't familiar with it..here is a wiki that explains it a little more.

Before the Dinner Starts, the Chaplain, with the assistance of his head acolytes, ligths the vigil candle to pray for the safe return of the Cadets at the end of the break. The cadet has been a part of this celebration for the past 3 years and this year is no different. Here he is, holding the candle as it is being lit, before proceeding out to place in the chapel. He and the man to his right will extinguish it at services on the Monday after they return.
