So master, ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to declare this school reopened, reinvigorated and modernised."

    The little one talking to the Duke is Michael Morgan. He went to sea as a cadet with The Royal Fleet Auxiliary. He left the sea after gaining his 2nd Mates Ticket got married and started his own business which has been very successful. He is now 71 years old and has a very full and happy life.
