Memory Lane.

* GUEST SPEAKER: Modern recruits to the Navy tended to be studious, scientific types, guest speaker Capt S R Braine of HMS Ceres told diners at the inaugural dinner of the Huddersfield branch of the Royal Naval Association, held at the Packhorse Hotel this week in 1953. 'Ordinary seamen' were hard to find when the average ship carried 1'm wireless valves and recruits had to know where they all were. Among those pictured at the dinner are, back, Mr C Garthwaite, S/Lt J Tovell and Lt C Wilson and, front, Lt E Moore, Mr L H Oliver and Capt Braine. (Examiner ref: 50-0172, tmc120112navy)
