Just a question about your training there Derek!
I know you mention in the Docks,would it possibly be this place,or is this too new?

Warsash Maritime Academy (formerly Warsash Maritime Centre) is a maritime (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/Sailing) training college and is part of Southampton Solent University (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/Southampton_Solent_University).[1] (http://www.merchant-navy.net/forum/#cite_note-0) The academy campus is just east of Southampton (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/Southampton) aside the River Hamble (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/River_Hamble) and Warsash (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/Warsash) village.[2] (http://www.merchant-navy.net/forum/#cite_note-1) The college provides education, training, consultancy and research to the international shipping (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/Shipping) and off-shore oil (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/Oil) industries. It is one of the United Kingdom's colleges responsible for the training of the British Merchant Navy (http://www.merchant-navy.net/wiki/British_Merchant_Navy). The courses on offer cover a wide range of maritime education and training from deck and engineer officer cadetships, including degree pathways, to senior officer certificates of competency, together with the associated safety training.

Of note! In the 1960s, not very far away from the Maritime Training Centre Warsash, in the neighbouring docks at No 50 berth Southampton docks,
a sea training vessel named HMS WARSASH, was a familiar sight.
