TS Mercury – The Transition Years

It took a number of years before the final future was decided of both the land that TS Mercury occupied and also of HMS President. During these years Mercury old boys frequently passed by the school and monitored the agonisingly slow progress of HMS President’s restoration as HMS Gannet. These pictures cover this period.
