In a bit of a nostalgic mood ,decided to check out any guys who attended Leith Nautical College Cadet course starting April 1954. After completing the course, I sailed with Ben Line, but only survived some 6 years then came ashore. Got married, 3 healthy successful sons, 6 grand children. Had a successful career in Social Work in NE Scotland, then retired. Did a few other things then finally retired. Looked after my ailing wife, for a short period, before she died in late 2007, after 48 years of happy marriage.
Now live in Borders part of the year, remarried and live with my Thai wife in Thailand for rest of year.
So anybody out there interested in catching up? Bob or Rob Spence

Also on behalf of the SN Moderating Team, a warm welcome aboard from the Isle of Anglesey - you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
You will certainly spark many happy memories when you explore our threads and, since there are plenty ex-Ben Line members, you have a good chance of re-establishing contact with old shipmates.
Good luck! (Thumb)
