My "Seaman's Record Book" says that I was a
Cadet at the Prince of Wales Sea Training School. Dover between the
19/05/59 to 25/09/59 with on
leaving joined the "Port Napier" on the 2October 1959 in Victoria Docks.
In reading just today the history on the school via the internet, I was
much impressed with the information as it brought back many good memory's.
As I live in Perth Western Australia for the forty years being involved
with the industry of the sea, and being one of the Boy's that had
religious studies at the school, I would never have believed that one day
in the future I would be a Minister of Religion and operating a Ship's
Ministry in Community and Overseas Humanitarian Aid world wide.
I am also involved in starting a "Tall Ships Training School" that has a
shore Ship Base, with a programme in building two replica's ships, one
being a 200ft Scandinavian Barquentine with the other be a replica of the
"Herzogin Cecilie" a 360ft Barque.

If you have any information about the "Old Boys Association" Life
Membership of the school, I would be most interested.
