In 2005 & 2006 I posted enquiries in this thread, trying to contact any former Ellerman apprentices that sail on the "City of Lucknow". This arose from an email exchange with Paul Wood concerning his http://www.rakaia.co.uk/ website of British shipping companies' training ships. When I had asked him why there was no mention of the CofL, he replied that he didn't know of her but that he would welcome any input (photos, anecdotes, descriptions of life aboard etc.) from former apprentices that would enable him to create a page for the vessel.
I have just received an email from Paul alerting me to the addition of just such a page onto his site. The information came from Terry Lyons, who was not an apprentice but was the Instructional Chief Officer on the ship when I was there. He had responsibility for the instruction and well-being of the apprentices.
Any of you former Ellerman people might like to check out the new page and are welcome to submit any info that might expand it.
