    Default Prince of Wales Sea Training School, Dover 1964/5

    My enduring memories of that awful school are; always being hungry. (the food was inadequate for growing boys) The massive waste of time spent marching, learning SEMAPHORE and the Morse Code, none of which we ever needed to employ when we eventually went to sea. The rope work, which I took to easily, and splicing, palm and needle work were the only useful skills they taught us. I joined the Port Napier in February of 1965 in Liverpool. I couldn't believe the size of the meals we were given after the near starvation rations at PWSTS!
