    Wasn't actually on Dolphin, but was at Leith Nautical college (which was very adjacent) 1968-70.
    Prince Phillip was due to do the honours re the new dock gates at Leith and he was due to go past Dolphin and LNC enroute. A few of us went out to see what was about, and saw that a number of the Dolphin lads had been paraded in their Battledress uniform. The Duke saw them from his car, and being an ex seagoing person, had his people stop and he went and did an 'inspection' and from what I recall he seemed to have a few words with them (we were a number of yards distant), and off he went to continue his day.
    Was anyone here involved in that?

    Hi Robert I remember you we were in the same class I am also Robert but you would probably remember me as Monty it would be good to catch up at some time in the future once we are free of the cov-19 pandemic.

    #50. Trying to figure out why I am on this old post on the Dolphin . Is it because I knew someone ? Or just got muddled up and put in wrong place. My only connection with any Nautical Establishment in Leith was doing a Safety Officers course there about 1983/4. Although have joined ships and left them there at various times JS
