Duncan Pascoe


I was at the PWSTS Dover from January to May 1975 in Arethusa Class.

The Class Instructor was Mr Burgess. Class mates were Frank Wrenn, Nigel Skaife, Kenny Sharp, Anthony Spencer, Chris Swift, Paddy Brown and Mathew Horton.

I sailed both as an Engine Room rating and later as a GP rating with BP Tankers.

Left in 1978 and went fishing before joining BT (GPO). Completed 11 years as a cable jointer and 14 years as a Surveyor. Took voluntary redundancy in March 2004 as we were planning to emigrate across the Channel to France. Plans fell through and I am now working for the NHS as well as helping my other half set up a small B&B business here on the North Coast of Cornwall at St Agnes. Married to Anne (nearly 25 years!) with one daughter, Katy.

Still in contact with Geoff Shepherd who was at the School at the same time as me but in a different class.
