Bless you for getting back to me - I didn't realise he was teaching as early as that! I was only born in 1964.

Hopefully a piccy of him when at sea will be attached FYI.

Hello fellow Hull Nautical College attendees:

I attended the college in 1971/ 72 as a cadet, along with Andy Holden, Bill Ainger, Bill Bailey, Shaun ?, Chris Mortimer? and many more. Duggie Buckle was our English lecturer, Oscar ? was another lecturer. Can anyone help jog my memory about the staff and students please?

That must have ben in the Boulevard as the 4college moved to George Street in January '73. The Oscar you refer to was Bill Littlewood. As a cadet you were probably taught by Trevor Spink, Mike Fearon, Jim Weatherston and George West to name a few. Does that jog the memory

1971 to 1973:

I was at the Boulevard for my first year and at the new college for my second year.

I remember Bill ( Oscar) Littlewood, Duggie Buckle and Jim Weatherstone, who if I remember correctly was principal?

We did our lifeboat training in the dock and dinghy sailing at Welton Waters in Enterprise class dinghies.

It's our 40 year reunion of our 1976 ONC course this Saturday in Hull. We meet in the Old White Hart at noon. All of the lecturers you mention have passed on unfortunately, only Dave Martin and Alan Hodgson are still around and sometimes attend.

Do any of you guys remember a Mr Pottage who did the cooking at the college?I was at a dinner party last night and met his son who was an ex policeman in Hull. He remembers getting the leftovers for the lads at the station when his dad had cooked too much.

I did Pre Sea, then 2nd Mates and Mates at HNC circa 1974. I remember Capt.Jim Weatherston(relative density 1.010), Nobby Clark, Tab Hunter, and many more.
In the class of '74, a few names spring to mind, John Clarke, Mike Graham, Ronnie Clark, Gerry Blunden. Had some great times in the "Gardeners Arms" and the "Hayworth".

Jim. John Clark lives in Monaco but still gets back to Hull a few times a year. Usually in September for our reunion and again in December. Mike Graham worked for ABP until about four years again, when he moved to work in New Zealand.

I have sent you a message, if it doesn't get there, let me know (That sounds a bit daft, but I am sure you know what I mean)

For the sake of completeness, I can say that Rod and I have exchanged emails, anyone else from 1964?

It is good to make these contacts, I am looking forward to boring Rod to death, and we are digging frantically to remember old thingummy jigs name.

I never sailed with Steve (Houlder Bros.) but knew him from college, and he lived not too far away (Otley, West Yorks), he was also good mates with my father. Had a good few boozy Friday afternoons !!. Last I heard he was living in York, joined the "Boys in Blue" if I remeber rightly.

It was a great course and it was fun, but the shipping industry had collapsed by then, very few of us ended up working in the Marine Industry, but we adapted to the new challenges.

I came across this website after searching for information about the old Hull Marine College, unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much about, I've often wonder what became of our teachers, Woody, Jane, Steve, Dave, Tomlinson, sorry to any I've missed.

I have just received an email that Alan Hodgson has recently passed over the bar.
I believe he was a lecturer in Navigation and was ex Port Line, leaving in the late 1960's.

Sorry to hear of Alan's demise, we only spoke to each other last year after an absence of contact of over 60 years, he seemed well and in good spirits, but we never know what is around the corner in the mortality stakes.

Alan and myself were at Trinity House, Hull together from 1951 - 1954, we shared the same birthday 29th March 1938. He was the school captain for his last year at TH, he joined Port Line, I joined PSNC, he always made the right decisions! We last met walking towards each other on a street in Wellington NZ in January 1956, I think he was on the 'Port Chalmers' and I was on 'Salinas' (on charter to Shaw Saville)

Rest in peace Alan, with fair winds and calm seas

I shared a "corner" of the staff room with Alan when I first went to teach at the College in 1981, He was always a gentleman. I believe he went back to Trinity House school when the Nautical College closed in 1984. RIP

John Witty

When I was up for Masters in 74 John Witty covered Seaman ship if I remember correct. He once told of a study he had done of a wreck of a Liberty ship in the Biscay.She lost her prop and went ashore off the Spanish coast.

After he told the story I told him my " Old Man " was Second Mate at the time. She had sailed from Hull where she had Dry Docked and had work done on the Prop / Tail Shaft.

Alan

Excuse me chaps, but what about the women on your courses? I am writing about them (in all the colleges) in an article for Nautilus International Telegraph and wonder if anyone could tell me about studying alongside women? What do you think it was like for them?
Thanks.
