In a recent question about the Royal Marines Police, the poster identified that his great-great grandfather and joined the service direct from Greenwich Hospital. As a navy-brat in the 60s / 70s I went to the successor instituion of GHS, the Royal Hospital School at Holbrook. I was there from 74 until 77 when my father left the mob and the boarding school allowance dried up. At the time there was nearly 700 pupils at the school, with the very great majority being sons of serving RN. - Are there any other ex-RHS inmates here? - When I attended, Holbrook was well a well-known school in the RN - is this still the case?
