I didn't go to Plymouth uni but spent a large chunk of my life in the Royal Citadel on the Hoe there, I guess you know where that is. I don't know when you were there but there is no doubt I would have met met a lot of your fellow students on the odd well behaved night out in Union Street!

Loads

Me (87-90 Marine Studies), Tiger, Manos, errmm Karl T is still there I think. Sure there was 5 of us but kinda losing the plot, sorry!

The RIB.NET gathering scheduled for Plymouth is also going to be a Plymouth Poly/UoP alumni gathering it would seem.

Also, "Well Behaved" and "Union street" are not two phrases I thought I'd see together in a sentence. "Union Street" and "Soddom and Gomorrah" would be more like it. The popular urban myth from my time in Plymouth was that should one be enjoying a beverage or nine on Union street and one got into a fracas with some Navy types (probably wouldn't survive a fracas with the marines ) one would be thrown in the back on the Naval Provost paddy wagon with aforesaid Naval types and chucked in the cells in HMS Rayleigh. And they'd leave working out whether you were Civilian or Navy until the next morning!

Alan,

I thought I had seen you a few times in the back of that hooligan van on the Torpoint ferry, I guessed you weren't helping collect fares!

Did you ever find out during your 'Marine' studies why after 12 pints we all ended up drunk and got picked on by students from Plymouth uni?

Pete

Yes I did went to Plymouth Poly (1980s)

...and I remember the Union Street and the Turkish Kebab shop at the top of the road, there was disco during my time called 'Barbararelas' then does it still exist??
Also there was VICK's Garage oposite the Poly is he still there. I use to take my car there. Cheep, cheep, cheep repair shop
He was a keen fisherman and we use to go out fishing sometimes together.
Well......... I had a great time in Plymouth (specially with the sociology, phycology and biology cources, if you know what I mean ) LOLOL

Jaspers is good for the the middle of a course.

Alan,
'Captain Jaspers' I was there at the weekend, what a change, it was a barrow when I was there. As for Cawsand what a lovely village, but was destroyed by outsiders buying up the property at silly prices and driving the poor locals out.

My two words are 'Ivor Dewdney' changed a bit now not so nice.

Pete
