People are being encouraged to share their memories of Graham Sea Training School for a new exhibition at Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre.

The exhibition, which starts in mid March, will be a collection of photographs, memorabilia and stories relating to the school.

These pictures are already part of the centre’s collection, and organisers are hoping that people will come forward with more.

Lindy Rowley, vice chairman of Scarborough Maritime Centre, said: “Any memorabilia or stories people can give will be gratefully received.

“We know that there are item in existence, such as school books and registers, so it’s just a case of getting things together.”

Lindy added that they would be particularly interested to see a photograph of Captain Smith in his original naval uniform, which is believed to be in the Scarborough area.

She continued: “We are not asking for people to give their possessions to us. We can take copies and return them.

“It’s just about archiving things so they can be kept for posterity and shared with other people.”

If you have any items which could feature in the exhibition, please telephone the centre on (01723) 369361 or call in between 11am and 4pm Wednesday to Saturday.
