Woolverstone - large photo taken october 1951

This is a photo that was taken in October 1951 and supplied by Jim Ferrier.
It is too wide to post as one so here is the middle, left and right hand sections.
The question is - Is that Commander Wiseman in the centre of the first section who is dressed in a light coloured suit and has his arms crossed?
There seems to be a lot of 'dinner ladies' or were they something else?
If you are on the photo please indicate for the benefit of others.
Thank you.

TU Alan, I thought it was but never remember seeing him out of uniform so was not 100% sure.
By the way how was the Capt. Superintendant's name was spelt Smethwick or Smithwick or?
Also was his first name Camden?

Thanks...

Smethwick, I believe. Wiseman was a severe figure who was not averse to striking the boys, as I witnessed.

Hi Len,

Hi Len,

My father joined LNSW 12.01.48 aged 14.
Are there any photo's available of the boys?
I have often wandered if anyone has photo's from that time period.

Kind regards
David Lawrence

It is just possible that he may be on the 1951 photo which was the first year that we were in civvies, just depends if he left at 16 or stayed on tip 17,

Hi David

I joined in 48 and I have posted a few photos on varios sites online like Facebook pages for Woolverstone and LNS. Also they are on SN threads for the sea schools. Don't recall the name Lawrence, but do you have any details like the Dorm he was in? It would have been 11 probably, as we were alphabetically housed, and I was in 12 with a few L's,M's,and R's. but not a Lawrence. We had Loveday and Lightbody. Another friend called Lindley was in 11 Dorm, and he followed me into the Bank Line, last heard of as 3rd Mate of the " Luxmi", a veteran of the line.

cheers/Alan
