I was an apprentice in Portsmouth Dockyard when the girls in the photograph joined. There used to be two entries a year and they were one or two behind my entry. I met them though, a few months after that photo. They came to the machine shop where I was on my second stint I believe.
Mary Bromley, Mary Malloy, Susan Wright, Vivien Hurage and Barbara Arnold. I wonder where they are now ?
How many of them completed the apprenticeship and how many continued along their chosen career path at the end of training ?
If anyone knows, please let me know.
