The place never really changed that much over the years did it? It was just like that in 1970.
No doubt myself and others can add to the list. For me it was the photographs in Nelson hall, the CMG, the pig farm etc.

I heard a lot of it was due for demolition in November last year (except the mast which is listed), not sure if that's true or not though.

Sad that it has gone. Pompey or Guz dockyard next. Although I give it a bit of a bashing in my story, our two class instructors were pretty nice blokes. I think the JI's were worse than any of them.

My pig big duty was truly wonderful - a bloody holiday really. And becoming a JRO and learning to type has been an asset.

You forgot to mention Shotley Routine :twisted: .....had a week of it when moved into a floater's mess. I went back there for a visit last September. The school block is now an apartment block

There is so much I left out so guys can add their own. The Captain's Rounds cake for instance. We actually won it!
 
The front gates are now also listed. They are one of the few examples of pusser ironwork dating from the reign of Edward VIII. The signal/Martello Tower is also preserved. In 2002 the Signal School was falling apart (the floor was unsafe to walk on really), the GMC was ankle deep in guano (persuaded the security guy to show us round it) and there were still some of the old chart tables in his office. The boy in the duck suit still runs through the padlocked doors of the swimming pool and you can hear him panting and him doubling on the tarmac - though it may have been my friend trying to wind me up! :???: :evil:

One of my relatives in Plymouth was there in the 20s - one of only two things he couldn't discuss: his time in the G Spot and his time in a Japanese POW camp.

I am worried that my clean cut image of my avartar has now made me the object of desire for a gay writer/Sparker from Brighton. Please advise.
