Great to see that. I thought it was the "Warspite" when I was at OBSS in 1952.

Hi Davyth, I was also at Aberdovey in 1952, course 114, Feb./March. The "Warspite" was the training ship but the "Garibaldi" was laid up there, we used to go aboard her every day to pump the bilges out.

Alec.

Right! I'd forgotten that. Remember Warspite for the excitement - forgot Garibaldi for the drudgery!

Before I was married we used to spend a fortnight on holiday in Aberdovey every year. What a lovely lace that is. We boarded above the dress shop opposite a big wooden building. Every morning the old steam engine plus a couple of trucks paid us a visit and you outward bound fellers would come marching down the road prior to going canoeing (if my memory serves me correctly all the canoes were named after red indian tribes) or swimming. Remember both the vessels mentioned and have a photograph of myself and some Arab regaled gentleman on the "Warspite", though I can't remember the occasion. I think these holidays and watching you lads going through your paces made me want to go to sea. However, not with Blue Funnel but Stricks.

I remember her in 1943 & 1944 but I think she had gone when I had a spell there in 1953 as an instructor.
Thanks for the picture-super!
