My old man Ted Ward was a pupil at THNS until he went to sea in 1942,just in time for the end of the Battle of the Atlantic,he was just turned 16 when he joined Turnbull Scotts Empire Summer and sailing as a 3rd.Mate by 19.Can anyone tell what dispensation of sea-time did THNS boys receive and what,if any, time did they get for the war?

Hello Ted
Actual title is: Hull Trinity House Navigation School
Six months remission of sea service after satisfactorily completing three years at the school
Have no idea what dispensation if any was given for war service

I was a cadet at Trinity House 08, Sept. 1958 to 09, Jan. 1962

Hi my name is Brian Hart, I went to Trinity House Navigation School from March 1970 until July 1973.
If any old boys from those years are still around it would be great to hear from you.
It was sad to hear that the school has now moved from the old buildings on the docks.

Brian.

A bit late in the day but anyone can have a last look round next weekend at the old place.Don,t think I,ll be going..get enough nostalgia on here!
This link gives you the details if anyone fancies it.

I was a cadet from 1973-1976, and back again from 1984-1988 as Signals Instructor after Nobby retired.

I am a member of the Old Boys' Association and I started a Facebook group for the Association last year.
