T.S. Mount Edgcumbe - Training Ship for Homeless and Destitute Boys by Bruce E. Hunt

The Training Ship Mount Edgcumbe lay at anchor off Saltash for over 40 years, just up river from Brunelís Royal Albert Bridge. Although a familiar landmark to the people of Saltash, there was little detailed information about the ship. It is thought that most of the records were retained by the last Superintendent, Captain Harkcom, and destroyed in WW2.

Recent research into the ship by Bruce Hunt has enabled the ships story and its relationship with Saltash to be told for the first time.
