HMS Raleigh. New entry in 1953
Written by Matt MarriottI remember the wooden seated bus that took us from plymouth station across the ferry to Raleigh. A 16 year old sprog on his first time away from home. My frst 3 mates were Lofty Harris, Tich Evans, and Jan Lockyer. That was May 1953. I never came across them again after training and wonder what happened to them. I contracted an ear problem while doubling round the parade ground doing punishment for lending a mate my spare cap and was put in sick bay which meant my being put back to another division to catch up. I wonder where they are now.
