Here she is. 1957. I'll try again. Tech issue.I was at the college in 1970. Cmd Kenworthy-Neil was in charge.
The training vessel was the Margarita.
I have tried to attach an image of the mess. I am on the right. I cant remember the names of the others.
Sorry, I've tried every which way but I cannot get the pic to reduce in size. Don't know why because I usually have little problem with this. Will have to wait until my son feels he can again come into the house - currently we are a no go area.Hi Duquesa,
They were at sea with those hair do’s as well. Just remembered that the lad next to me was called Rob.
If you go to advanced settings when posting the image resizes automatically.
Hi Richard,I know this is kind of an old thread, but I was at RSNC from '74 to '78. I went to sea with Athel Line, which morphed into Anco Tankers, then Panocean-Anco.
I live outside San Francisco now, working as a surveyor.
Hi Just scanning the web for photos of Margarita which you say you have is there any chance i could have a few please. [email protected]The original Margarita was no minesweeper but a very excellent sailing vessel of which we were all extremely proud. The minesweeper came later. Possibly the ex. St.David and no doubt under the command of the redoubtable Fred Ball.
I spent many happy nights on watch duty in both Barry & Penarth docks on the old girl. I have some excellent pics of her if anyone is interested.
