       Admiralty Portsdown, Portsmouth Apprentices Roll of Honour

The Portsdown site of the Admiralty Surface Weapons Establishment, which is the name most people will remember it by, saw the first buildings being erected in 1974 but apprentices were first recruited for the establishment at Witley in Hampshire and when the workshops were completed in 1949/50 they were transferred to their new parent site.

This Roll is of all the apprentices who, for historical reasons, were trained at the site. There may be the odd error and we will be very pleased to hear of them so that corrections can be made. We are always on the look-out for ex-apprentices so that their details can be recorded and available for anyone who wishes to make contact in the future. If you have information or know anything about apprentices not included, please send this to pham2144@aol.com. There is also a Facebook site at ASWE Link-up

Wherever a surname is marked with an asterisk (*), this means that further information is available.
