This is my model of HMS Ganges the very ship that gave its name to the famous or infamous boys training establishment, depends on how you viewed your time there as 15 year old boy seaman,I was there in 19-58 the place opened in 19-06 to 19-76 I believe that 15 year old boys stopped going there in 19-70 when the school leaving age was raised to 16.They used to say they took on 15 year old boys and turned out 16 year old men.I had suspended this  build so as to finish my ww2 trawler model in time for the annual reunion at the sparrows nest the home of HMS Europa the patrol service base.
