    G'day David and welcome to the site. From there you went to sea no doubt, what were your ships and do you have any dates to go with them? If so and you care to post them on site it is possible some may remember you. So sit back with a cold one and enjoy the voyage.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    I did pre-sea school at Grimsby ‘71-‘72 then ONC while a cadet with Shell Tankers. So sad to see how Grimsby declined to how it is today.

    I attended the old Grimsby Nautical School near Riby Square, 1953 to 54. I returned to the new School for second mates, mates and masters ticket.

    I was in the Catering Dept 65/68 quite a few of my pals were in the Nautical Section first at Lock Hill Nautical School then later on with their tutors a Mr Hill and Ron Shepherd I think it was they all moved to the main college. If I remember right they practiced their new found skills on the cadets at the Hall of Residence across the road from the college. Following on from completing our courses many of us ended up on the same ships, early 70's in the QE2 kitchen (she was classed as a hotel) hence not galley there was 11 of us from Grimsby The college had a fine reputation in those days for Nautical Catering and Engineering courses. When passing today I can't help looking up at the ships bridge atop the building. I believe in the last couple of yrs Engineering Cadet courses have been re established. Extra activities took me to Lock Hill on a Wednesday afternoon, for sailing canoeing and rowing a 2 ringer Mr Mason was one of the 2 instructors. The rowing was in lifeboats lowered from davits into the Alexander Dock all good fun once everything got underway, alas the afternoon would come to an end to soon.
