Dave Harrington was ex LNS and Bank Line. Not many of us left.

very best wishes to you. / Alan R
Yes there are quite a few books about Ganges Alan once you start looking and its history e.g.: http://www.abebooks.co.uk/book-searc...he-royal-navy/
We have a large Association of 2335 members all over the world.
During our last Reunion in April over 400 of us went back for a visit, church service, buffet and tot for the last time before the whole site is redeveloped.
At least some of the buildings are listed and will be restored as should the mast if promises and legal requirments are met.
For any Woolverstone Boys the swimming pool is also to be 'refurbished' and available to all.
