Was at Portsmouth Tech for OND 1960 to 1961,just before they changed the college name to Highbury Tech.
Did the Marine Engineers still have "CLEM" as their mascot?

I think clem must have stayed in Gatcombe house as us Scots and Irish weren't allowed to stay there (something to do with education grants or something) Can't remember the name of the fat guy who looked after the place . He used to teach MEP down at the annex. The MEA used to have some great party nights down at the Tricorn nightclub.

The guy's name was Mr Francis ex R.N cant recall his first name, are you in contact with any other guys that were on the same years as us at Highbury.

Have a look at google earth.- Ithink the tricorn is gone and the college is unrecognisable. The sheds that we used to share with the dockyard apprentices with the lathes and milling machines ect have gone.
