Some memories:
  • CCF army camp where we nearly got shot with a live ammunition exercise with dockleman on a machine gun!!!
  • Jonny Riddel always catching us out with hands in pockets on shopping trips to Nairobi and having to do 10 pressups on the spot.
  • Being taught English by Agatha Ridley, what an incredible lady.
  • Mr Hirst, Mr Seldon, Mr Gammie, Mr Macgregor....... what characters!

    Since Leaving School
  • Joined Bristish Thompson Houston in Rugby as an electrical engineering apprentice (2 Years) then went into shipping joining The Manchester Ship Canal Company (Port of Manchester) for 6 years.
  • Joined Cunard in 1969 but the company changed ownership 4 times over the last 36 years and I am still here working for Atlantic Container Line (now owned by Grimaldi) as Rollon/Rolloff special projects Co-ordinator, retiring in 2 years, god willing.
  • Wife, Joan; son, Peter (28) daughter (24)

    Living in Irby, Wirral, Cheshire.

    I did’nt know until I read the article on Mr Fletcher that he originated in West Kirby, which is only 2 miles down the road….

    Great to be back ......I spoke with Rev. Harry Brice end of last year, which came as quite a shock as the last information we had on him was that he had died at sea back in the late sixties. It came as a shock to him to !!
