    Possibly wrong but think that after closing they turned the sea training college closed they turned it into a police training college.

    Hi Fred, I wasn't far behind you November 1950
    big culture shock for me, I'd had a pretty sheltered
    life, I could never get over the open plan toilets, but
    I persevered and spent 11 years at sea with loads of
    great memories,the not so good I can forget about
    My book was R542907 (never forget it). Now89 and
    still going strong what a life I've had.

    Hi Joseph.
    I think that the Gravesend mob had a web site, at least there was one a few years ago, try a google search as I can't remember their site name. There may be group pictures on it.
