I am often asked by old tars what recruitment I was at Ganges, but I can't remember. I joined 5th Jan 1960. Simon Dupree was our Junior Instructor. When we over to the Main as a Bunting Tossers to Benbow Div, Chownes was our Badge Junior in Benbow. By the way, if anybody is interested, I visited what is left at Shotley about six months ago, and took photographs. Drop me an email, and I will forward them to you. But it will be a shock. The mast is now rusty, there are weeds growing thru the tarmac of the officers tennis courts, and just about every window in the dining block has been put in. [email protected].
