Dick Malone here, I attended MNC starting with an induction course on the "Worcester" in late 74 and was one of the first "phase one" in the new building in late 75, completing "phase three" in late 77 early 78. I was employed at the time by Maritime Overseas Corporation (MOC) along with Peter Wee (Pwee)and one other.
I passed through the ranks and a tedious seagoing career with Souter Shipping and have ended up, along with ex MNC attendees Simon Malins and Chris Wheeler, as a London Pilot.
My recollections of Phase one are dim but I remember Nick Symonds from Houlder Bros who lived in Tonbridge. Phase three brings back memories of Adrian Mccourt (Shell Tankers), Simon Robinson who I now believe works for Trinity House and Russell ? from Cornwall.
I would be pleased to hear from anyone who remembers me, to fill in the blanks!
Best regard to all
