More on Ganges Pedophiles.

Dressing the mast
On the 4th December 2012, I posted an article about the pedophiles at HMS Ganges. It occurred to me I should post it on the forum at the Ganges web site. I felt it was a subject that should be discussed openly without fear or shame. The article was rejected by the Ganges webmaster who thought it a bit too controversial. He was very polite about it and I didn’t argue the point. Nevertheless, I found it odd that he didn’t think the boys from Ganges would want to be reminded of this darker side of the camp. Why would anyone not wish to talk about these things? they happened, they were a part of the Ganges system. Over the years the Ganges website has discussed many subjects, both good and bad, and the subject of pedophiles should not be something we should be ashamed of or afraid to talk about. We were not the ones responsible we were the helpless victims. I’m curious to know how many Ganges boys read my blog and I wonder if they agree with me or have a different point of view. Either way I would like to hear the views of other boys on this apparently untouchable subject. I believe the chain of command was aware but it was so prevalent throughout both senior and junior staff it was easier to just ignore. I think they felt comfortable knowing that a boy would never dare to accuse a senior officer of such a crime. And of course they would have been right back then, that was how the system worked.
We are not boys anymore, and I for one am not afraid to talk about this shameful side of HMS Ganges. I hope others will agree with me.
God Bless and keep reading.
