Class of ARETHUSA 08/01/62 to 05/05/62.
School number - 3465.
Left the school to join the Port Chalmers which had a major engine
breakdown en route to America. Returned to the Royal docks and joined the
Port Auckland on which I stayed for two trips to Australia/New Zealand and
also coastal around the UK.
I then found it difficult to find my next berth so I did the next best
thing and joined the Royal Navy. I served seven years in the Royal before
I left and settled on dry land and got married. I had a number of jobs but
I served 25years with Sussex Police and retired in the year 2000. Now with
time to reflect it is time to reflect on past adventures.
