I guess you couldn't lower a butterworth jet down there?
Hi Wendy, I am an 86 year old Master Mariner (retired ) We could go different routes to achieve the and pass the examinations/ I will explain my own and then give you the alternatives. 1. I passed an exam for a scholarship to Hull Trinity Houser Navigation School and studied maritime needs for 3 years.1948 to 1950.Would appreciate any advice on anywhere that I can find records (preferably online) of application for Mate certification for someone who would have gone through this process between about 1935 and 1955. I know that they first went to sea in 1932, were a cabin boy in 1933 and were 1st Mate when they died at sea in 1956. I have their DOB, full name and discharge number. Looks like the records would be in BT318 but a search on the National Archives site did not reveal anything useful...
