Captain Vine was fond of the Prince of Wales Sea Training School and he fully supported the PWSTS Society. He is also fondly remembered by many of the old boys.
 I regularly kept him updated as regards our activities and he was always enthusiastic and encouraging. He could easily recall details about his time as Commanding Officer and could recollect many boys names. It is thanks to him that we have countless photographs and such items as the pocket money register.
 Some of you were lucky enough to meet him again in 2005 when we were honored to have him attend our reunion at Dover and unveil the PWSTS Commemorative Plaque on the Prince of Wales Pier.
 Captain Vine was a remarkable man in the true sense of the word and he had a very full and active life. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
 I miss him already.

Andy, I'm not sure if we are too late or what the family wishes might be but I would be more than willing to donate should it be flowers or a charity in his memory. I feel so priviliged to have met him again at the Dover reunion it was an honour. My sincere condolences go to his survivors. He was a wonderful Gentleman.

I was honoured to once again meet up with this true gentleman at the Dover reunion, and although it was 38 years since we had last met, it did not take him too long to recall me.
A truly wonderful guy who will be long remembered, R.I.P.

With Sadness,
Tony.

Woah , I wasnt ready for this . This very sad news has really shocked me . It was only last year that Jane & myself met Captain Vine at his house to get Andy's Certificate signed . We had to be there fairly early as he had to catch a train up north to visit his son . Very fit & active Jane & I both said .

Our full condolencies go to Captain Vines family & friends , the sad loss of a great & generous man .

Jane & Sharky

I have been out of touch for a bit, and now read of the passing of Captain Vine with so much sadness.

I could not believe ,when I met him again in 2005, that he actually remembered me after so many years.

The world has lost a special person, a person I will never forget.

It's after meeting people like Captain Vine that you understand why England is called Great Britain.

My he rest in peace forever.

Roger has just found this on the Vintage Port forum:

Hi Andy, I saw this item on the "Vintage Port" website this morning, and thought it might be of interest to some of the other lads. Good luck with your move! Roger.

There were two brothers Vine, both Suez canal pilots and both with warime service in WW2 in the RNR. On losing their Suez canal jobs they returned to the UK. One was well known to Port Line as a deep sea pilot, being carried around on coastal voyages. Colin Vine, Captain C.F.Vine,DSC, RD,RNR, became the Captain Superintendent at the Prince of Wales Sea School of which he was very proud. Colin was Master of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners 85-86. Aboard the WELLINGTON his photograph in the ' rogues gallery ' leading from the gangway aft to the quarterdeck shows him with his wife. This is because she died in his year of office. Colin himself died  several years ago Tony Braithwaite

Lionel,

Served in in command P and O Ferries out of Dover - this having been previously Townsnd car Ferries, European Ferries, etc etc.

Many of my Deck POs, being local to Dover, had been trained at the Prince of Wales Sea Training School at Dover and they were very fine seamen indeed. At one time the Captain Superintendant was a Captain Vine and I think he had a brother who served in command with Townsends.

The building still exists but is rather derelict and may be converted to flats.

Regards

Jim Martin
