Hi Alan,
Do you remember me, Trevor Templeton, I was in the Sea Cadets from 1967-68.
I used to come with Gary Ormesher, Richard Senior, and a lad called Fred who was an AB, but just before I left was an acting PO, he lived in Goose Green , and work as a fitter in, I believed the Wagon Work’s.
Ring any bell’s, let me know.

Hi Trevor.
I remember your name and the other names you mentioned. However, after all these years I couldn't put a face to any of them.

I am 84 years old now and the old memory box doesn't work very well any more. Anyway, thank you for responding to my post.

Best regards, Alan.

This post re` " TS Lady Crawford " has jogged my old memory too!
I was a member from`65-`66 and only left due to our moving. Enjoyed my time on board .
I remember Gary Ormesher and Richard Senior;also Brian Woodward. We all attended Abraham Guest school.
The C/O was Oliver Somers. Tony Campbell ( Campbells chemist, Pemberton ) was a PO and I think I can remember you as being a PO too.
There was also an ex RN sparks called Jack who was a lively character as I remember!
Strange that I have just joined this site and my initial perusing should turn this memory up!

Thanks for answering. I was an officer from June 1962 to Nov 1970. I was made CO just about the time you left. Hope you are doing well !

Hello, thank you for contacting me. Brian Porter is not a relation. Bert was my brother and Maurice my cousin. No other relations.
Best wishes to you.
