“ looking for anyone from this entry ”
I joined HMS St Vincent as a boy of 15 in 1955/56, my entry No, I just haven't a clue, I whent back down to Gosport last year to see what it was like now, I Found that it has been turned into a Collage of further Education, Main entrance is still there, and the St Vincent Plaque is still on the gate wall, the mast has gone (the Devils Elbow all way' s scared the s..t out of me when you had to go over the mast as punishment. JPSmedley X/Hawk 1 Class 1955.
I joined (January 1963) just before you I would say, and I'm sure I was in Anson 552 class then I got back classed to Cornwallis 570. I'm presuming looking at the divisional picture that was taken in front of our beloved mast that you also were in Anson division, I've found me on it I'm on the right hand side, right on the end in the third row up. Where are you??? I did recognise two of the lads, left and right of you on the photo that was taken indoors. I'm presuming that the class photo you put on was taken when you were in the New entry block.? JEM John Wray Anson 552 Class.
