I went to the new school, which I didn’t like. At 15, friends are harder to make than at 11. My classmates had all been together since they started school and I was on the fringe. The groups and gangs were formed and I soon realised that I ran Seeds the danger of ending up with the sad and the bullied, so I reacted by painting myself as a mysterious loner who was biding time before setting off around the globe. My schoolmates in Berkshire didn’t quite know how to treat me; most were starting to form their own plans: the dull were leaving as soon as they could, destined for local labour fodder, the others were staying for sixth form. All the science buffs wanted to work in nearby Harwell, the rest had half-formed ideas of working in various businesses, mostly local, many with their families. A few had university plans. My mysterious loner persona placed me as being tolerated on the edge of school society and mostly left alone. I began to put myself in a position I couldn’t retreat from. Before the O-level exams at the end of the summer term, I went to London for an interview with a shipping company, to apply for a place as a deck cadet with their oil tanker fleet.
