I was there from November \'76 - February \'77. X Class deck. Anyone with a photo from then? I can\'t remember if we had one took? McGorran was a hero hey! I remember him telling us to unship the plug & throw it overboard, then laughing as the water started to gush into the boat. \"Never fear lads there are 2 plugs\". \"YES\" I said \" They are joined together\" Panic in the boat as one of the lads poked the best part of his jacket into the hole. Happy days hey?

I was there October to December 1995 doing my Motormans course, at the time they were talking about moving to a local college and Met Police using it as a training center. Any more word on that?

I remember a pub called I think Rose and Thistle or something, awkwardly placed dartboard made a trip to the gents a hazard.
