I attended the PWSTS in 1963, I think I
started in July, I was one of the Kiwi's there that year.
I currently live in Brisbane (Australia) and have done so for the last 25
years. The last UK ship I sailed on was the MV Turakina and I paid off in
Tokyo in 1966 and returned to NZ and continued at sea for a further 2
years before coming ashore.
I spent the next 27 years in retail both in NZ and Australia and I am
currently working in The I.T. industry. I have 4 children aged from 35 to
22 years and only 1 grandchild.
I would like to catch up with Willie Walker from the Isle of Mull who I
sailed with on the Turakina and was also a pupil at PWSTS about a year
My email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org and I would like to hear
from anyone who knew me at the school.
November 2008 update - I now reside in New Zealand.
