Tal-Ħandaq Nostalgia

Memories of the Royal Naval School, Malta, 1947 - 1978.


Lifeboat Drill; Dunera Cruise 1967

I am sure that this was the Dunera cruise of early 1967. I was in 3B at the time and this is a scan (took a while to get it down to 250kb!) of a picture that appeared in the Times of Malta.
I cannot name a soul, (apart from me of course! Front row,4 along with head at jaunty angle, book in hand and OMG turn ups!) So if anyone can fill in those names: go for it!

Back Row Third, tall, fair hair looking into camera, Chris Willmann, directly infront, with glasses, Ewart Shaw, teacher with right hand on hip looking into Camera, Mr Griffith
Prefect   [Feb 15, 2009 at 01:34 AM]
And is the other teacher Denver Martin?
Martin Powell   [Feb 24, 2009 at 04:17 PM]
Looks like him, but don't recall either of them being on the trip. Stripy shirt looking into camera is Richard King with Jim Woodhams directly behind him (to the right in the pic, not Ewart to his right).
Chris Willmann   [Feb 24, 2009 at 06:42 PM]
Agree with you Martin, That IS Richard King and James Woodhams behind him. Can't recall who the other teacher is though:-(
Prefect   [Feb 25, 2009 at 12:41 AM]
Well,well. I didnt recognise RK. We were neighbours in Paceville in 1959. See STAFF Album
Chris Howells   [Sep 08, 2009 at 04:44 PM]
Great guys, but where are they all now? Question
Martin Powell   [Oct 20, 2009 at 01:32 PM]
Oh and the kid to the right of Mr G (slightly behind), is me, and Rob Ross next right slightly behind again, (not the one level with me).
Chris Willmann   [Oct 20, 2009 at 08:13 PM]
Yes, I do actually recognize that to be you and Rob Ross. Who is the blond kid next to Rob, slightly ahead?
Martin Powell   [Oct 24, 2009 at 09:33 AM]
No, don't recognise anyone else. The girls had a different muster station (and dorm of course!) but can only recall Gaynor Hamley and Sally Rathmell. Can't think why I should only remember the glamourous L6ths when I was in 4th.

To Chris H :- RK and JW(*) are in UK and have been to reunions. Rob Ross and Ewart(*) are in Oz. Chris W(*) in Canada. (*) are on Facebook, most can be reached via Viv Daly and the reunion committee (viv@dmeventservices.co.uk).

Great guys! I must admit RK and JW I am sure I have in other photos somewhere and I am so embarresed that I do not remember more names! e Embarrassed

Hi Chris. February 1967 to be exact. I spotted my brother David Butt 2nd year, the cheeky face with glasses in row behind you but head appearss between you and the guy on your right. I (Tony Butt 4th Year) am in the back row with glasses, my head appears to left of the window in picture.
Martin Powell   [Mar 31, 2010 at 09:48 AM]
Hi Tony, glad to see you've made it on here. I recognise you now!
Nigel Brickell   [Sep 27, 2011 at 02:33 AM]
Im totally embarrassed to admit it but I do not recognise anyone, but that's me hiding behind the Chris Willimann Laughing
Prefect   [Sep 27, 2011 at 03:50 AM]
I've enlarged it, the better to see you all. Shocked
Chris Willmann   [Sep 27, 2011 at 05:40 PM]
Hmm, been awhile since I looked at this, but I do now remember both Tony B and Nigel B, Smile but not David B Sad Hope you are all well!
