Exclamation Re: RN Shore Training Establishment: HMS St Vincent

THE MAST AT HMS ST. VINCENT

Can anyone advise the actual height of the mast please?
A recent report in the Daily Mail put it at 183 feet - even higher than a famous rival!

I completed my service in 1979 as a Warrant Officer in the role of Research & Development Officer for Sea Survival.
I would be glad to give you any help regarding times spent at St Vincent. It would be nice if you let me know his name.

The photo is of the Hawke 73 passing out class taken in around March/April 1955. after a year at St Vincent. I am in the front row, second from the end. We all left shortly after to join our various designated ships in the fleet. Myself & a few of the others were drafted to HMS Undine a Type 15 Anti Aircraft Frigate. Do let me know if you should require any further information regarding Hawke 73 & members of the class.
