Nice photo Iain. Looks like the lads are having a bit of a laugh, I wonder what he's sending to them?

1939 - I wonder how many survived the next 6 years. According to the RAOSS, 10% of the many thousands of Merchant Seamen lost in WW2 were Captains or Radio Officers.

During the Second World War, its address was Crescent House, 40 Windsor Street. After the War, it moved to much smaller premises in Airlie Place. I attended it in both locations, but had to go to Leith for my 1st Class PMG in 1947 as the College had closed.
