|Message from H.M.S. Ganges Museum
Hello and thank you for visiting this page.
This gallery has been set up as a temporary home for images that have not so far been added to the Museums Official Collection.
If you see an image that you own the copyright to and want it removed please leave a comment below the image or email us with evidence of ownership and we will remove it.
Please note that the date in a caption is either the date when the photo was taken or relates to or is the date of entry to HMS Ganges of the donor.
A lot of the photos we have are from postcards and are almost impossible to date. Some cards come to us with hand written dates on the reverse, this date could be when the photo was taken, when the boy who first purchased the card was at Ganges or even a guess by someone who has no connection to Ganges but made that guess when they were selling the card. If it has a post mark we know that is the latest it could be but a print run of cards could be on sale for many years after the photo was taken. We try our best to get the correct date but must point out that some mistakes will possibly get through.
Captions which end with either an alphabetical letter or a numeral indicates that there are other photos donated in the Gallery(s) by the same person. Some photos may appear in more than one gallery, for example a photo of the Hanger taken in 1962/3 is in the 1960ís, The Old Establishment and Aircraft at Ganges/RNTE Shotley galleries.
The information with the photos is, in a lot of cases, supplied by former Boys/Juniors who attended HMS Ganges prior to 1977, so memories may not be 100% correct, if you see an error please leave a comment below the photo.
