First Days

Lots of my friends have been posting photos of their children on their first days at their new schools. I just posted a couple of my first day as HMS Conway, which was exactly 47 years ago today on 9th September 1969. While I was looking around, I found a few more of my “first days” photos. This is a little self-indulgent but I thought that they were too good not to share with you, so here they are.
