Description: This photograph shows the Marine Society cadets studying in class on board the 'Warpsite' (1893). The boys’ school education was overseen by two schoolmasters and they also had religious instruction from a chaplain, who visited the ship daily. As well as traditional schooling, the cadets were taught duties such as slinging a hammock, navigation, sail drills, rowing, and rifle and cutlass exercise.
