WORCESTER at Greenhithe

formerly the EXMOUTH

The training ship WORCESTER of Greenhithe in about 1978. I remember her when she had the CUTTYSARK alongside. I also remember the sunset being played on a bugle? I understand that she was built in 1904 and up to 1939 she was off Grays  as the EXMOUTH. She provided sea training for boys sent on board by the Poor Law authorities in her early days. Renamed WORCESTER after the war and moved to Greenhithe. Does anyone remember her or even served on her?
