Description

HMS Ganges.

HMS Ganges was a Royal Navy Training base at Shotley, Suffolk. Ganges in the early years was afloat in Harwich Harbour and from 1905 until 1976 as a shore base. Life there was tough and the site included a 143 foot ships mast, which was manned during training and annually for a ceremonial mast manning with a “button boy” standing high above the parade ground. Around 150,000 boys were trained at HMS Ganges.
