Johanna Kendall, Helen Stowe, Gerry Stowe and Wayne Kendall on the afterdeck of the MS Eurodam in June 2011

We thought we would take a cruise through the North Sea and Baltic Sea, and get away from everything and everyone so there we were, having dinner onboard the MS Eurodam, when I got a tap on the shoulder, turned around and met 8828 Wayne Kendall (’71), fellow member of the Kingston Branch and fellow member of the RMC Club Executive Committee, taking the same cruise with his wife Johanna. You can’t escape – you will run into Ex-Cadets all over the world. Wayne said that, as he and Johanna were passing through Gatwick Airport, he spotted another member of the Kingston Branch, too far away to hail; it turned out to be 5256 Gwyn Griffith (’61), arriving for a three-week holiday in England and Wales.


We encourage Ex cadets, other former students & staff to submit short articles of – Where they are now.
