I know one Nav App and one E App who sailed on her 1958/59.

The N Apps on her 1st Nov 1959 were; DA Wood, NL Walters, BJW Bowley abd D Atchinson

The E Apps on her 1st Nov 1959 were; AE Armitage,DJ Fickling ,KL Ramsden and LD Young.

Unfortunately I have never been successful in contacting any of her 1959/60 Apprentices.
