I was at a private school...
Is that what they used to call Borstal? :wink: :lol:

At my comprehensive school we used to refer to it as Colditz... though to be fair, if you ran away you weren't (usually) shot! :lol:
You have caught me out AaC,it was run by the Nuns, god what a dreadful time I had, hated every moment of it !!! :sad:
Never experienced the delights (or otherwise) of the female of the species. I'd have thought you'd have a whale of a time with all them saucy nuns! :wink: :lol:
Trust me AaC, you dont want to experience the Nuns, they are complete bitches, they have no souls and can be very nasty towards kids, must be a power thing !!

Er, about to choose which CSEs and O Levels to study the following year... when I was 15.... :oops: Oh yes, and plotting my escape from school! :twisted:
Inboard --spare crew with a quiet number after six years and two boats one after the other.

Didn't last long----------ended up doing CSST then got another boat!
2nd Year apprentice at Cammel Lairds Shipbuilders in Birkenhead, building T42's at the time, little did I know that a few years later I would be serving on them...funny how times change. :p

Just thought I would celebrate my 100th post with the fact that 30 years ago today I first set foot in Guzz on my way to HMS Raleigh. Seems like yesterday

I think the only person left in the mob out of my entry was, when I last looked, driving HMS Endurance. I wonder if he'll be celebrating today?
A mear child!
