I think you're covered by this one "School University College Dept of Navigation in Southampton". I was at the SON for 18 months in total, 1967 for MAR (OND) and later in 1969-70 for 1st year of Nautical studies degree at Southampton university.

Smile Rustication

I was rusticated from the Warsah SoN in 1971 after an altercation with a group of locals after a night in the Rising Sun. There were a number involved but only those cadets on the Mid Apprenticeship Release course were rusticated, those on the OND course were let off with a warning.
It actually worked out well for me as there was a rail strike around that time and I was promptly promoted to Acting 4/O and packed off to sea. My salary went from around 26 a month to 104.
Now 67 I've often wondered whether I'm still rusticated from Warsash or whether I could go back to finish my MAR course?

Search 'Warsash Association' - they're looking for new members and hardly a drain on resources at 15 per annum.

Some of the "yobbed" caps in that photo are awful. Most of them look like characters from 'On the Buses' !!!!
I bet old Billy Blythe would turn in his grave at the sight of them.

A tad narrow minded view, methinks: Some of us worked hard to get the lived in look; but a lot had to be down to squeezing the steaming bonnets into suitcases. They came out for stations, lifeboat drills and mooring stations so were quite busy, and tended not to blow off so easily in the wind with the more aerodynamic silhouette ! Just made sure the cap cover was clean and gleaming white.

Agree Hugh. As you say packing in cases did not help. But there again if you were not ex SON you were looked down. My pre sea started in 1776 or the abouts so more history.

My son is there now, and another friend was on the Superyacht side of things recently. The site is being vacated as I think we all know; a casualty of that beautiful view...
