Highbury Tech. Engineers Vacation Course

This pic was taken in the summer of 74, when the college closed for summer hols, exept for engineering cadets who had to stay on for a coarse in the workshops. I can't remember how long this ran for before we were allowed on holiday.

I seem to recall that it was either 3 or 4 weeks, sweating in the workshops, I must have missed out being in the picture...
Happy memories....

Cheers

It was about 6 weeks.We only had 3 weeks summer holiday.
Remember it as being a scorcher of a summer.
Can recognise a few people on the photo, bit I am not on it.
Dave Garner, Cunard cadet.
I am now in Daewoo shipyard in Korea, leaving tomorrow for 4 days of sea trials on a new ship. As far as I know, only me and Mick Packer (Chevron) are still at sea.I work for Maersk.

Mick Packer. Good guy. Used to play football with him as well. He did his knee in a game against the Royal Navy and limped badly through the last few months of college. I thought he would struggle as well at sea caused he probably needed what was then major op. Good to know he was ok.
