    I was three!
  10. I wasn't there. I just found some phots. I was ten. When I was there, I do remember being molested by a gang of "passer-outers" who tried to wash me with a load of long handled yard brushes and a shit load of teepol though. An old custom invented to terrify nozzers called "The Judge". Oh the fun we had in the showers.

  12. I did all that and I WAS at Ganges, so there :p
  13. I don't think I'm in the guard but I'm probably in the photo. Thanks Billy. where did you get the phots from?
  14. I live too far away to go, however I would love to attend to see just how much has changed in fifty odd years?
  15. Try this:

    Go Google and type HMS Raleigh old photo 1960 (other years may find more)
    and select "images".
    Happy to help.
