    Chris the photograph is quite good and a small one . Keep the big of that so that I can see it very clearly. I think those days at the school would be the best one and memorable.

    Didn't we all have funny haircuts in those days? I was a Vindi Boy from April to June 1949. Have never been able to contact any of my mates from those days. I dont have much hair these days.Don't suppose any of my mates have either.

    As supreme as this site is there maybe (dare I say it) some other avenues folks could search for. There are now Facebook Gravesend Sea School and Vindi pages.It is a possibility that some on there may not know of our existence here.If one would like and not everyone would I do well understand, subsequently found some old friends bring them on over!!! Regards, Alan.

    As a matter of interest,does anyone remember a deck instructor named Mr.Day? Although I was catering, he would take us out in the whaler as part of the course. He was a real old salt, and his favourite expression was "pull like you were pulling a German off your mother"

    I must be going (am ) mad . Every time I look at shipmates new school photos I am sure some of them were the same boys in our class. See if I am right..Perhaps they just changed their names and went back year after year because they enjoyed it so much.. Regards Alan..

    Thumbs up Gravesend Sea School

    Hi.Jan
    I,m glad that someone remembers some of the faces. We had a couple of celebrity lookalikes in the instructors. As you said Mr.Day looked like Arthur Askey and Mr.Roswell was a dead ringer for Tommy Trinder. I can't remember the name of the chief instructor, all I know was that he was a right cowson.
    Cheers
    Pete
