Unit History: National Sea Training College Gravesend

National Sea Training College Gravesend
The Gravesend Sea Training School was founded in 1918 following the First World to train boys aged 15/16 to join the Merchant Navy and help replace the men who were lost in the war.
 
Around 70,000 boys were trained there and it became known as the best sea training school in the world.
 
In 1963 the National Sea Training Schools became the National Sea Training Trust, and three years later a purpose built college was opened at Gravesend – designed to replace both the old Gravesend Sea School and TS Vindicatrix at Sharpness. This new establishment was called the National Sea Training College.
