Stephen Walpole

It was with great regret that I discovered that the mnc greenhithe was demolished in 1999.

My name is Stephen Charles Walpole, a former M.N. officer who studied at Greenhithe from 1974 where I undertook my induction course in Sept. of that year.( I was a cadet with London and Overseas Freighters from 1974 to 1985.) Our group was the first to be taken into the shore based block in Sept 1975 for phase 1 college training and the second phase was from Sept 77 to April 78. I can assure you that many a happy day was spent at Greenhithe although the local facilities ie pubs were rather limited.

I continued through the ranks with various companies until being promoted master on North sea supply boats with BP shipping via the management company Northern Marine Management in 1990.

I remained master until 1994 when I finally left the sea after many happy and fruitful years and retrained to become a pharmacist. I am currently employed as a Consultant Pharmacist with Boots the Chemist in Lincoln.

Hope to hear from you soon
