Shotley Mags: Easter '62 - Summer '65: Anyone here in them?

Discussion in 'Bases / Shore Est' started by Always_a_Civvy, Mar 21, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I recently had the good fortune to buy a set of 9 Shotley Magazines (HMS Ganges) from eBay, all of which are in mint condition.

    The Ganges Mags arrived this morning. I have got the following editions:-

    1962 - Easter, Summer & Christmas
    1963 - Easter & Christmas
    1964 - Summer & Christmas
    1965 - Easter & Summer

    Plus the Parents' Day Programme for 26 June 1965 & a few other odds and sods.

    Does anyone here appear in any of them, to their knowledge?

    I've Just spotted Nutty in the Easter 1962 Magazine (p27) with his memorable haircut.

    I also have a duplicate Christmas 1964 edition....
     
  2. Excuse me but I also get a honourable mention on page 53 of Spring or Summer 62 Mag (I only have a copy of the page) for passing my ETLR 2nd name 2nd column.

  3. Oh, I didn't look there... just in the bit headed Drake...

    You're right though: Summer '62, p53:

    On p.29 of the same Mag it reads:-

    In the Easter 1962 Mag, on p.27, the spiel about 39 Mess reads as follows:-

    There! Satisfied?

    Hi AAC,

    I was there during April 62 to March 63 - can't remember if I would be in any one of them though, but you're welcome to seek me out !!
    My Recruitment was #49, and I was in Grenville 23 Mess, Instructors/Badge Juniors names I cannot recall at this time (probably didn't like 'em so forgot 'em when I left)
    Would be interested in seeing the piccies on the site also.

    The first picture is the one AAC refers to printed in the G Mag. This is a copy of the original Drake Div Sail Racing Cutter Crew.

  8. And now the phots...

    Sorry for their quality but this is how they appear in the printed magazines. I have copied them with a dedicated 50mm Macro lens for the best quality I can obtain.
