"Where The 'Lads' Are Taught To Shoot" - Naval College Gunnery School c.1918


About this memory

"Mostly all [Navy personnel] had to attend this school, which I think even merchant seamen to be on active duty had to attend. All the Kent coast was well known for naval training." - Evelyn Muir (née Mobbs)

Inscription reads "Where the 'Lads' are taught to shoot".

Photograph from collection of Ernest Mobbs who served in both World Wars.
