Alan,on the woolverstone hall web site they mention thatLNS was for the poor of the east end, well when i moved down from Scotland we moved in with our grandparents up in highbury and i went to st.Aloyiseus college ,I thought that i went to LNS because I wanted to go to sea,
I remember our trips to Ganges for sports. It was an ' eye opener'!
The tag LNS Woolverstone had was of course a hangover from the old ' Exmouth' days when it was widely regarded as a sort of correction school. Although a lot of the old boys resent being told this, the impression generally was maintained by the RN officers we had like Mr Mathews, Pamphlin, and Denton who enjoyed telling tales about the ' tough' old days and the punishments on offer!
