Boats and Child Sexual Abuse

This post is to highlight the abuse of children and its connection to boats, yachts, ships, narrow boats and sometimes water related activities.

[This copy of Boats and Child Sexual Abuse is the latest copy. It was first posted 15 August 2015, but due to some annoying glitch in wordpress it was filed back in April when the article was started. I have now deleted that]

Abuse happens on various types of boats from narrowboats used as houseboats on canals to sea going yachts. Boats of course have advantages for abusers. They can be a venue for abuse with the captain having almost absolute power over his crew.

Boats are also means of transport – which can be used for carriage of pornographic books, tapes, images or even children and boats can cross more easily across borders without going through customs.

Boats are away from immediate interference of police, or authorities. Indeed it is often confusing which authorities even have jurisdiction if any or supervisory capacity over children. International waters,  children from several countries,  holidays in a private capacity are complicating factors.  In the Azimuth Trust case the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Social Services Inspectorate had to be called upon, whereas it would normally be a local authority or Child Protection Authority.

Boats can also be a means of dispose of bodies of victims.

Azimuth Trust- Dr Roderick Morrison Fraser and Michael Johnson

Adventure and Education Afloat was formed March 1989. It is not clear whether it changed its name, or merged to form Azimuth Trust in either 1989 or 1990, with Morris Fraser and Michael Johnson and John Lambeth as founders. The newsletter was called Sea Borne and often contained naked boys. The magazine was sold to other paedophiles.

Four summer cruises were held from 1989 – 1992. The last one finished prematurely with Johnson being arrested after parents of boys on the cruise complained to an Azimuth Trustee who had alerted the Council.

Azimuth was also the English offshoot of Ecole en Bateau. Dr Morris wrote an article for Society at Work extolling the virtues of independent living for children on the boat holidays and they advertised in “Education Otherwise” for Home Schoolers and the Times Education Supplement.

Johnson owned schooner, Grace O’Malley, with his wife Elizabeth but by 1994 was being held by a bank to which Johnson owed money.  Also they had a 32 foot Gaff yawl “R” and 42 foot schooner “Mary Bryant”. [3]

Johnson sailed to France 1986, Lanzarote, Canary Islands. Assaults on boys aged 11 and 9 took place on cruises to France, Denmark, Holland, Germany, Scilly Isles and the Outdoor Centre (St Justs) [3]  Fraser also travelled to abuse children in other countries, including America, Turkey, Holland and Denmark. [74]

Johnson and Fraser had contact with paedophiles Charles Napier, Peter Righton, Terence Waters, Leo Kameneff and others. Only Michael Johnson was charged and jailed for abuse from Azimuth Trust, despite evidence of more child abusers in a network. [3]

Leonid Kameneff / Kamenev Leonid Kameneff was a psychotherapist and set up Ecole en Bateau in 1969.  Between 1969 and 2002, more than 400 boys and around 60 girls took part, leaving their families for long journeys, some of which lasted over a year as an alternative to mainstream education [39].

The first complaint was in 1971 and subsequent complaints made in the 1990’s. Kameneff was imprisoned for two months in Martinique. Released, he took flight into international waters before being arrested in Caracas, Venezuela in 2008. He was extradited to France a few months later, and indicted for rape and sexual assaults on minors under 15 years. In 2012 in a rare ruling, the French state was found guilty of “denying justice” to the complainants by taking so long to bring a trial, and was ordered to pay large sums in compensation to the alleged victims. There were three boats, the “Karrek Ven” a fishing vessel, the “Paladin” and “Bilbo”.

Kameneff was sentenced to 12 years in jail. The two co-accused were Bernard Poggi (also Poggi-Vérignon), 60, sentenced to 6 years. Abused as an 11 year old himself by Kamenev, who was then his teacher, Poggi returned as an instructor on the boat aged 20 and started to abuse boys then. Jean-François Tisseyre, 58, who also worked on the boat, received a suspended sentence of 5 years.  Their co-accused, a former student who was a minor at the time, was acquitted [21] [40] 

Kameneff appears to have written a book “the court read several excerpts from a book published in 1979, when Leonid Kamenev told in terms sometimes very raw sexuality of young people on board” [41]

Most of this paedophile network is still at large.

Edward Heath 

[This is a brief guide to Heath and boats. There will be a vast amount of information not covered, and any relevant material or links will be welcomed in confidence if desireable.]

Heath owned 5 boats called Morning Cloud.  Morning Cloud I date of launch 1971, II 1973 , III 1975 , IV 1977, V 1979. His wikipedia entry states. “Heath was a keen yachtsman. He bought his first yacht Morning Cloud in 1969 and won the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race that year. He captained Britain’s winning team for the Admiral’s Cup in 1971 – while Prime Minister – and also captained the team in the 1979 Fastnet race. He was a member of the Sailing Club in his home town, Broadstairs.”[90]

There is also an wikipedia entry for Morning Cloud [97]. In 24 hours before Sept 3 1974 two Morning Clouds sank in the same storm [53]. Morning Cloud had been sold in December 1970 to Stewart Benest of Jersey, who renamed it “Nuage de Matin”[30]. She was sunk off Gorey Castle, Jersey, on 2 September 1974, after the seas took her from her moorings [53] [56 p527]. Gorey Castle is close to Haut de la Garenne.  The second boat that sank was Morning Cloud III off the coast of Sussex, in which two people died [53] [94] The bow section was restored and given to Arundell, Heaths old house [94] [78].

Michael Shrimpton has spoken several times about Ted Heath’s child abuse, his yacht, and child murder and Haut de la Garenne in Jersey [1] [75] .

An ex resident of Haut de la Garenne Childrens Home claims he saw children from the home being taken on to Heaths yacht and came back crying [81]. There have been allegations that 11 boys left on Heaths boat and only ten returned when he went out with Savile. This was reported to the police with a Jersey Senator but nothing was done. Read direct from witness Lindas blog [83] or via the corporate oligarch owned media  [76] [77].

Heath was a member of Broadstairs Club [34] near where he was born in Kent and sailed on the Medway.

broadstairs yact club

For Broadstairs Sailing Club, from which I learnt so much

The Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble, (between Southampton and Portsmouth) was where Sir Edward and his crews put together their sailing strategies which led to his success in winning, inter alia, the Admiral’s Cup in 1971 [92]. His boat was moored on the River Hamble.

His boats were built specially for him.  Morning Cloud I-IV were designed by Sparkman and Stephens I was built on the Medway. II and III were constructed by Lallows (Isle of Wight) [97] [92].  ‘Morning Cloud IV by Alldays and then Camper and Nicholson boatyard at Gosport, Hampshire, England. [99] [97]  His boats had RYS on the back which presumably is the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes.

Heath appeared to very much frequent the Solent, River Hamble, Gosport and Isle of Wight, perhaps Poole where many of his crew were from with forays to Burnham on Crouch and of course Jersey.

He obviously visited many boat clubs, this picture below being at Royal Channel Island Yacht Club which is at St Peter Port in Guernsey. A Jersey Evening Post report from July 1976 documented one of Sir Edward’s visits to the Island to promote his autobiographical book  “Sailing: A Course of My Life”. He attended a dinner in St Helier (Jersey), where he was welcomed by then Advocate Helier Mourant and Bill Challinor, commodore of the Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club. [95] 


Heath at Royal Channel Island Yacht Club, St Aubyn July 1976

During a speech, Sir Edward, who died in 2005 aged 89, is reported to have said: ‘According to your Deputy Bailiff [Peter Crill], people in Jersey are engaged in one of two things – sailing or crime.’ ! [95]

In a statement at the begining of August 2015 the Jersey force said: ‘The States Police can confirm that they are aware of the UK Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation into historical corruption allegations relating to child sexual abuse in Wiltshire. ‘Sir Edward Heath does feature as part of Operation Whistle, currently investigating historical allegations of abuse in Jersey.’ No one had come forward before  Lenny Harper was wrongly sacked and he is worried that it may distract from the rest of the inquiry [227]

Heath, a child abuser who attended half a dozen meetings of the Paedophile Information Exchange meetings [116] at Westminster, had a luxury top floor apartment at the Waters Edge Hotel in Bouley Bay owned by his friend Mike Wavell [115]. Heath moored his boat off the cliffs in Bouley Bay [115].

Wavell later became President of the Defence Committee, in charge of Jersey’s police force. His 2011 obituary is here [118]. @StuartSyvret has tweeted “Mike Wavell is said in survivor circles to have been a child-abuser. Additionally and to my own knowledge, Wavell ran adult nursing homes where patient’s were abused  including a terminally ill woman who was raped by a psychopath male rogue nurse.”

In addition Jimmy Savile, the prolific child molester is said to have rented ‘The Reef Villa’. “It was in Bouley Bay but not at the ‘The Water’s Edge Hotel’ or their chalets. It was a small rental villa just up the hill past the chalets and tucked in beside the cliff pathway. Very private and all that. ” [117] Possibly the Reef View Villa is meant, which is now in the grounds of the Undercliff Guest House, and only about 100 metres from the Waters Edge Hotel [119]. Hopefully someone who is able to use the maps properly can provide a photo of a map with all these places marked on as my link is not very good [120]

As though to get the their excuses in first, the photo below was captioned “Ted Heath at the helm of Morning Cloud. It has been alleged that he anchored the yacht outside Jersey waters and therefore beyond the Island’s jurisdiction” [95]  It is not clear how far their jurisdiction goes.

9958021The photo below with Anthony Churchill and Heath is possibly on the Isle of White. It is from this article [85]


Heath also opened the Racing Officers Hut at Creeksea Sailing Club Burnham on Crouch in Essex. [91]


Heath is getting alot of attention as to whether he is a child abuser or not.   As Stuart Syvret points out, a more basic and fundamental question in the face of such allegations, is  “Does it appear that law-enforcement and other state agencies have acted unbiasedly – have acted lawfully – in investigating such claims?”  The authorities knew about Heath and Savile but covered it up [101].

Lenny Harper Police investigator of Haut de la Garenne said: “Savile chose his victims with great care; vulnerable and often troubled youngsters many in care homes. If they complained they were labelled troublemakers, or brutally put down. We know from court cases and statements made to my team [during the 2008 inquiry] that children in Jersey care homes were ‘loaned out’ to members of the yachting fraternity and other prominent citizens on the pretence of recreational trips but during which they were savagely abused and often raped.”  [44] [52]

Paul Every was the commanding officer of Jersey Sea Cadets [[4]s64] who was arrested as part of Operation Ore for serious crimes against children but not suspended by the Jersey Sea Cadets. “I eventually had to go to London and threaten to stand at the gates of the Sea Cadet HQ and disclose to individual parents before they took action.”

It was alleged that Jervis Dykes, a teacher at Victoria College abused children in the naval section of the Combined Cadet Force and on sailing trips around Jersey and to Greece. It was also alleged he took the boys to St Helier Yacht club at the same time that senior police officers were there. CI de la Haye stopped officers going to the club to make inquiries without him being present. The Detective also remembered interviewing the Deputy Headmaster and being told by the Deputy Head that Dykes had assaulted the boys as “payment for the time he provided in taking the boys sailing.”  The officer also revealed that one of his supervisors was a close personal friend of the Deputy Head.  Another officer remembers that this supervisor had at least one child at the college. [[4] s66-70]

For some time, Legal Advisor Laurence O’Donnell and I had been concerned at the difficulty in prosecuting paedophiles in cases of historic abuse.  This had been exacerbated by difficulties over the case of **** ****, who was the commanding officer of the Jersey Sea Cadets and who was also a senior civil servant in the Chief Minister’s office.  He was arrested as part of the national “Operation Ore” where the FBI had netted thousands of suspects who had used their credit cards to pay for internet sites involving child pornography.  He was one of a number of senior Sea Cadet officers arrested for serious sexual crimes against children.  After his arrest he had not been suspended from Sea Cadet activities and because of my concerns for the safety of the children involved, I disclosed the information about his arrest to the Sea Cadet authorities.  Among the sites he had searched on his computer were a number involving “naked sea cadets” and other child pornography sites.  The Sea Cadet authorities in Jersey were not responsive, telling me that a man “is innocent until proven guilty.”  I eventually had to go to London and threaten to stand at the gates of the Sea Cadet HQ and disclose to individual parents before they took action….This was even more of a concern than it would have normally been as the Head of CID was also an officer in the Jersey Sea Cadets… Allegations were being made against Dykes that he abused children whilst on outings of the Combined Cadet Force (Naval Section) or on sailing trips around Jersey and to Greece.  Dykes was later convicted of a number of indecency offences [49].

The police investigation into Haut de la Garenne began in April 2006 after an investigation into abuse within the Jersey sea scouts [50] Care leavers have reported being taken to people on boats.

satanjersey sunsea sunseasatanThe above are stills from “Sun Sea and Satan”, a documentary by Bill Maloney of Pie ‘N Mash Films on child sexual abuse in Jersey and is essential viewing [51]

Dyana Maloney, Bill Maloney’s sister, was brought to Haut de la Garenne, Jersey on a sailing trip in 1986 [[51] 45.00 mins] from a childrens home in Britain. She financed the making of the film and was found dead not long afterwards.

Witness 195 of the Jersey Historical Abuse Inquiry tells of a visitor, described as a “well-dressed smooth-talker“, who began began violently sexually assaulting him [228] [229]. He said the assaults continued for more than three years, most Saturdays, and at various locations around Jersey, including at sea on the man’s boat.

Jimmy Savile’s child sexual abuse was prolific and much is public. He visited Haut de la Garenne [121]. He was a friend of Heath, he was believed also to stay at Reef View Villa [117], near where Heath stayed at the Waters Edge Hotel and was on Heaths boat when a child was reported missing from it [83].


Savile at Haut de la Garenne

Neil Hocquart was born in Jersey, as was his ally Nick Rabet. They were child abusers who both killed themselves in custody. Rabet in Thailand and Hocquart in custody in Ely, Cambridgeshire, 1991, after being found with hundreds of paedophile videos. He had grown up in care in Norfolk and was taken to Guernsey, where he became the “cabin boy” of a sea captain, before returning to Britain to recruit children for the paedophile ring [122].

Rabet worked in Islington, two other Jersey-born social workers also worked in Islington. One arranged sailing trips to Guernsey; the other sent children to Rabet’s centre. Both were accused of abuse [211].

A police inspector’s body was washed up on exclusive beachfront after he ‘jumped off a ferry’ around the time of the Jersey care home investigation [71] In a comment on the article it says that Neil Munro was alleged to have been investigating the yachting community, following claims that children from Jersey care homes were being loaned out to wealthy yachtsmen [211].

Prosser visited Haut de la Garenne. He was part of the same paedophile network as Ralph Bonner Pink MP [see later], and he owned a childrens holiday home in Wales where children were sent from Portsmouth childrens homes.

Variety the childrens charity of Jersey was started in 1968 at the The Waters Edge Hotel [96]. As detailed previously the hotel was owned by Mike Wavell who is said in survivor circles to have been a child abuser. I have no information that the Variety Jersey has had any connection with child abuse. In the last decade or so Variety Jersey have launched ‘Spirit of Variety’ sailing catamaran and ‘Spirit of Young Variety’ fishing boat. They replaced the ‘Spirit of Variety’ with ‘ The Vernon Lilford Spirit of Variety’, which is a bigger catamaran and better equipped for wheelchair bound sailors [123].

Bloggers from Jersey are FreeSpeechOffshore [101] Voice for Children [102] Rico Sorda  [103] , Bob Hill Jersey Blog [125] and Leah Goodman is the US journalist who was banned from Jersey for reporting about the child sexual abuse [104]

Away from Jersey..

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu [All page numbers from his autobiography [46]]

Lord Montagu’s name appears alongside child sexual abuse as he was prosecuted in 1953 for having underage sex with a 14-year-old Boy Scout at his beach hut on the Solent, a charge he has always denied and of which he was acquitted [48]. He maintains he was innocent but he states Kenneth Hume was behaving mildly indecently towards another scout. (Kenneth Hume was Shirley Basseys husband. Basseys father incidentally was also a child abuser). Montagu also claims that many years later, a scout who was there told him that accusations arose from the scouts out boasting each other about their experience and the scoutmaster overhearing [p135].

So, Montagu’s story is that he was not a child abuser, but he does mention that he turned a blind eye to his friend, Hume who was.

Montagu was arrested again in 1954 and charged with performing “gross offences” with an RAF serviceman during a weekend party at the same beach hut. He was imprisoned for 12 months and he blamed a deep vein of antihomosexual prejudice, from Home Secretary Sir David Maxwell Fyfe, the Lord Chief Justice Rayner Goddard, and Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Sir John Nott-Bower who was convinced of a homosexual conspiracy. Sir John swore he would tear the cover of all filth spots [p98]. In Oct 1953 the Sydney Daily Telegraph reported there was a Scotland Yard plan to smash homosexuality.

Within weeks of his incarceration there was a debate in House of Commons led by Bob Boothby and Leo Abse (both now believed to be child abusers) which led to a committee of Inquiry led by John Wolfendon, called “The Departmental Committee on Homosexual Offences and Prostitution” [p124].

As well as the infamous beach hut and land on the Solent, Lord Montagu owns Beaulieu River – banks, bed and all [46 p6]. He also owns a maritime museum at Buckler’s Hard, with a nearby marina, and the river harbours over 200 moored yachts [46 p9] [47]. Lord Montagu is the Commodore of the Beaulieu River Sailing Club [46 p20]. He was also vice commodore of the House of Lords Sailing Club [p203].

Montagu mentions a trip on his motor yacht once with Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones to the Isle of Wight, [p275]  when Jones was trying to lay low after drugs charges. He also mentions taking Roy Orbison out on the Solent on his yacht.  Montagu’s daughter [p103] used his motor launch Cygnet in June 1997 for her wedding. Montagu no doubt had access to many boats and his aunt and uncle, Lord and Lady Forster also owned a motor yacht Mirama [p20]. Diana Dors mentions going on his boat in her memoirs []

Montagu was an extremely well connected man, having been to Eton, and being in the House of Lords. He had links to paedophile Lord Mountbatten [p132] who asked him to go to Broadlands to meet members of his committee set up to investigate the security of prisons. Montagu was famous for his fancy dress balls, and Mountbatten was a guest at his first in 1963 to mark the opening of the Maritime Museum [p278] and again at his Great Gatsby Ball in 1974 to cebrate Montagus second marriage. Montagu also remembers other parties including one at Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes. He was also known to Margaret Thatcher [p229], and friends with Long Longford [p 134] [p207] Many people are mentioned in his autobiography which is worth a read for people wishing to make connections between people and paedophiles.

[Added 1 Sept 2015 – As people are reading this as research for his obituary – He served in Palestine and spoke out in Parliament against Zionism as he saw the bad effects caused by it. I believe his maiden speech was on Palestine]

Ralph Bonner Pink MP also a child abuser, owned an ex lifeboat called Ambler kept in Emsworth Harbour and was a member of Emsworth Sailing club [31] [32].  (An odd incident happened, which I mention in passing, at Emsworth Sailing Club in 2014 in which a retired naval captain drove his car at the club and set it alight and was charged with arson [33] )

In England Bonner Pink MP took his boat on the Beaulieu River and to the Montagu Estate, as well as to Portsmouth Harbour. When his daughter Jannella was young they went for two weeks each summer to Bembridge Harbour on the Isle of Wight except when they went to France. In France they went to Honfleur and Barfleur, in Normandy and visited Bayeaux [32].

Bonner Pink knew Edward Heath and Peter Prosser, child abuser who also went to Haut de la Garenne as well as of course as Heath and Savile [32]

Clifford Luton founded the North Sea Cruise Association, Ashley Rd Park Street, Poole, Dorset in 1964  [11] [Update 2017 Apr 2 Corrected to N. S. C. A. is: The Vicarage, 539 Ashley road, Parkstone, Poole, Dorset HT Jan see comments. Any more information on NSCA and abuse would be useful] He was a BBC Northern Ireland correspondent. He was investigated for being in a child abuse network with Morris Fraser and Nicholas Reynolds. He was thought to have links to the Azimuth Trust and was investigated, but no charges were brought. He was skilled yachtsman, with 28 foot boat Sarah Jane.  [11] [18]

Rev. Jan Knos was a child abusing vicar who owned a barge and two ocean-going yachts at one time [20].  He died in jail of a [suspected] heart attack, waiting for trial on 28 charges of gross indecency and indecent assault against underage boys and girls [20]. He was going to be named by Geoffrey Dickens in Parliament, until Dickens was warned not to by Bernard Wetherill the speaker. Dickens helped in private prosecutions because it appeared that local police in Hull were protecting him. The police had decided not to prosecute, and that decision was taken in Hull but they wrongly said it was a Director of Public Prosecutors decision [19]. See also [38] [37]

Peter Clulow had access to young boys during maths lessons and he preyed on them during sailing trips aboard his boat The Saraband [58]. The prosecution said: “The defendant had been a music teacher at Haberdashers’ Aske’s for 23 years, but left in 1985 following an allegation by two fourth form boys that he had indecently touched them while on his boat during the summer holidays. Notes from the school show he initially denied the abuse but the two boys amazingly had taken an audio recording device on board that captures some of the comments made by the defendant.[58] He taught sailing at the school. Clulow filmed at least one boy touching himself. [59]

Fred Talbot Both of Talbot’s victims, said to be 14 or 15 at the time, were assaulted on school canal barge [probably narrowboat] trips in the Cheshire area in the mid-1970s. Each boy was abused by Talbot as they slept in a partitioned area [22].

Unknown VIP Abusers The specialist Met team had traced a group of men using rent boys from the notorious “Chicken Rack” at London’s Piccadilly Circus. They had built up a bundle of intelligence from their HQ near King’s Cross station in central London, tailing suspects to hotels, public loos, private homes and even boats on the Essex coast. A member of the team said they knew they had “unearthed a minefield” leading to the heart of the establishment [35].

Daniel Bryant

bryant2In 2013 Daniel Bryant finally admitted 10 indecent assaults against 5 boys committed between 1969 and 1985. He had been a policeman with Devon and Cornwall Police for more than 20 years before he finally retired on grounds of ill health in 1994 after a third complaint of child sexual abuse. Complaints had first began in 1987, when the victim was told that the allegations were uncorroborated, even though a ­second lad had also alleged abuse. Even after reports of child abuse Bryant continued as a PC in Devon and Cornwall Police’s juvenile bureau when authorities referred children to him for counselling.

Bryant was founder member of the Devon and Cornwall Police Surf Life-saving Club, which operated until the early 1990s.  After leaving the Police, he was also a national volunteer with Surf Life-saving GB. He was the chairman of the rescue commission of the International Life Saving Federation of Europe.  He was even awarded a British Empire Medal for his youth work. In 1991 Bryant was one of two North Devon police constables to take part in a 128-mile Nijmegen March endurance walk in Holland, raising money for the RNLI. [15] [16] [17]

It appears as though the Devon and Cornwall Police covered up Bryants child abuse, and Bryants record as well as other enablers need checking to see if they helped cover up the Azimuth Trust child abuse network which was around at this time.

Basil Elliston took a 15 year old pupil to the International Boat show. He was a keen yachtsman and made his moves on sailing trips he organised [13]. In 1986 the magistrate and headmaster of North London School jailed for 5 years for 9 offences of indecent assault against boys [14] It was heard that he often persuaded boys to play fantasy games involving nude canings, bondage and ice cold baths.

Ken Rabone Camden Council took over Stockgrove Park School in 1989.  In 1992, following the insistence of Camden education director Peter Mitchell, a new headteacher was appointed. Ken Rabone, a man with no experience in dealing with emotionally disturbed pupils, was given the job. He failed to tell his interviewers that he had a criminal conviction for assault with an offensive weapon. The situation deteriorated dramatically in November 1992, when an anonymous letter was sent to the education director alleging that Mr Rabone and his wife had engaged in unacceptable practices on a canal boat activity trip. [24]

Mervyn Dyer between January, 1 1969 and December 31, 1972, committed acts of indecent assault on a regular basis on at least one boy at St Mary’s Junior Sailing Club, Gosport. A victim finally reported him when an adult and after taking a child protection course at the club where he was abused. [63]

Charles O’Neill and William Lauchlan committed numerous child abuse incidents in Irvine, Falkirk and Skelmorlie in Ayrshire as well as Alfaz del Pi, in Benidorm. They used a boat “Andola” from  Largs Marina to dump a body of a woman they had killed in the sea off Ayrshire in an attempt to hide the sexual abuse of her son. [68] Their court appeals are here [241] and [242]

Devryn Griffiths, 34, who lived on a barge on Macclesfield Canal, Cowbrook Lane, Bosley, admitted four counts of taking an indecent photograph of a child. He asked for 14 similar offences to be considered.[69]

Three apparent police suicides within 4 days. As mentioned in the Jersey section, a Police inspector’s body washed up on exclusive beachfront after he ‘jumped off a ferry’ around the time of the Jersey care home investigation [71]. It is not mentioned in the article but Neil Munro was alleged to have been investigating the yachting community, following claims that children from Jersey care homes were being loaned out to wealthy yachtsmen. Another policeman Richard Fuller was a member of the Royal protection team. [211]

Thomas Hamilton – Dunblane

Thomas Hamilton is best known for being the perpetrator of the Dunblane Massacre, as determined by the Cullen Report whose download link is here [114]. The transcript of the inquiry is also useful [243] . However the Cullen Report leaves many unanswered questions, and even Lord Burton an ex Grand Master himself, acknowledged there could have been a cover up with masonic links [127] [126].

A good source for research is the book Dunblane Unburied by Sandra Uttley [100a] which appears now to not be easily available. The pages numbers with references to boats are from Dunblane Unburied by Sandra Uttley listed at reference [100b]. Raw information on boats from Sandras book is therefore included in Appendix 1, and this section goes into more detail than usual.

From the information extracted from Dunblane Unburied [and placed in Appendix 1]  Hamilton probably had 3 boats, consecutively. A speed boat called Lady Sheila, then a 26 foot cruiser, name unknown with an inboard engine which he sold. The third was a large 40 foot cabin cruiser called Tropical Winter which was bought cheaply for about £5,000 from the police and which was destroyed by a gas cylinder exploding for which he received £36,000 from the insurance.

He used the boats to transport boys to summer camps which lasted up to 6 weeks on Inchmoan Island in Loch Lomond. In 1998 he was found to have insufficient lifeboats for the number of boys. There were many complaints of various abuses at these camps, mainly physical, but some sexual. He also was on a barge with some boys [p38]

The boats enabled him to make police contacts Michael Mill, Anthony Bushnell and Donald Cowan, some through the Central Scotland Police Diving team. He was also friends with other police who knew about the boat eg William MacDonald. Hamilton allowed friends to use his boat in his absence.

Hamiltons paedophilia is not as well known as his shooting. Cullen admitted in his summary that Hamiltons “previous conduct showed indications of paedophilia”. This is a diminution of the true situation.

In the Inquiry Cullen had received a report on Thomas Hamilton from Professor David J Cooke, Head of Forensic Psychology for the Glasgow Health Board and Professor of Forensic Psychology at Glasgow Caledonian University. He also had three reports from Dr JA Baird Consultant forensic Psychiatrist at the State Hospital Carstairs containing a psychiatric assessment of Thomas Hamilton. Both expressed the view that Thomas Hamilton demonstrated paedophilia. Cooke suggested he had many characteristics of sexual sadism.

Hamilton had masses of photographs of boys in trunks over the walls of his house, as well as many videos featuring semi naked boys. [5.48]

Many parents had reservations about Hamiltons attitude to the children and his physical disciplining of the children some of which were reported to the police. Hamilton’s Scout Warrant was withdrawn in 1974, with the County Commissioner stating that he was “suspicious of his moral intentions towards boys” [113].

More evidence that Hamilton was a paedophile which will be dealt with in a future article on Dunblane, this article will address Hamiltons boats and where they link with boys.

Cullen in his report chose to dismiss one major incident that a witness said happened on Hamiltons boat, of penetration of his rectum by Hamiltons fingers, detailed in the following pages of the Report.

cullen1 cullen2[100a]

Many documents from the inquiry are not set to be released for 100 years with no adequate explanation.

One possible reason for a cover up in the Cullen Inquiry and Report according to Norman Bassett written in Dunblane Unburied is that Thomas Hamilton was a procurer of young boys for paedophiles at Conservative Party Central Office [p96]. Another is the abuse of boys at Queen Victoria School Dunblane, and its link as a school used by the Ministry of Defence, its many Freemasonry links and that Hamilton was known to be a frequent visitor to Queen Victoria School. An ex housemaster blew the whistle but was investigated himself and only recently has it been added to the Scottish abuse inquiry [127] [128]. Lord Burton claims a link to the Speculative Society which has as members Cullen and other member of the Judiciary.

Lord Mountbatten was a notorious, prolific and violent child abuser, of which little has come out yet. The nearest perhaps that it has got to the corporate press is Richard Kerr stating that Mountbatten was involved with abuse at Kincora [106] This article will concentrate on Mountbattens association with boats.

Mountbatten served as commander of the 1st cruiser squadron in the Mediterranean Fleet and, having been granted the substantive rank of vice admiral on 22 June 1949, he became Second-in-Command of the Mediterranean Fleet in April 1950. He became Fourth Sea Lord at the Admiralty in June 1950 and attended the funeral of King George VI in February 1952. He then returned to the Mediterranean to serve as Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean Fleet and NATO Commander Allied Forces Mediterranean from June 1952. Promoted to the substantive rank of full admiral on 27 February 1953, he attended the coronation of the Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953. Mountbatten served his final posting at the Admiralty as First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff from April 1955 to July 1959, the position which his father had held some forty years prior. This was the first time in Royal Naval history that a father and son had both attained such high rank. He was promoted to Admiral of the Fleet on 22 October 1956. [107]

Mountbatten’s  arranged the visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to Dartmouth Royal Naval College on 22 July 1939, taking care to include the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret in the invitation, but assigning his nephew, Cadet Prince Philip of Greece, to keep them amused while their parents toured the facility. [107] Mountbatten became mentor to Prince Charles.

Even on his boat when he Mountbatten died it is insinuated that the 15 year old “crew member” from County Fermanagh who was also killed on the fishing boat Shadow V [245] was in fact an abused child [246].

Jimmy Savile

Savile was buried at an angle of 45 degrees to fulfil his wish to “see the sea” in a cemetery at Scarborough.

Michael Burke regretted not pushing Savile off a boat [109] but a Captain did throw him off a boat, albeit onto land not into the briney. Savile was accused by a couple of abusing their 14 year old daughter on the Canberra, flagship of P&O fleet. The Captain quizzed Savile, believed the parents and not Savile, and confined him to his cabin for the rest of the trip until Gibraltar and then threw him off  [111] [110]

It is believed he worked for and frequented Cunard after this and cruised with them until 2011, the year before he died. He was known as a big friend to Cunard who were going to arrrange a sail by of his coffin in Scarborough, until the child abuse revelations broke into the corporate media after his death [112].

Jimmy Savile was given a Green Beret by the Royal Marines [238] and there were claims of abuse at the prestigious Royal Marine Commando Training Centre at Lympstone, East Devon [132] . Seven Royal Marines acted as Jimmy Saviles pall bearers at his funeral [238].

See the Jersey Section for Saviles activity on Jersey.

Jeremy Thorpe

Thorpe is best known perhaps for his plot to kill Norman Scott, an ex lover, a crime for which he was found not guilty with the help of the judiciary and the establishment [248].

He also covered up Cyril Smiths child abuse and was a serial user of “rent boys” [247]  [248] .

However his connection with boats was with another possible disposal of an individual that had outlived his usefulness for Thorpe.

Henry Upton, at one time a very close friend of Thorpe, drew up a new will in which he disinherited Thorpe, ‘whose friendship has proved limited’, in favour of another friend to whom he sent his signet ring and other valuables (which was all he had to leave apart from his debts). Then, using money borrowed from a widow, he chartered a 15-ton motor cruiser on the Sussex coast. A few days later the boat ran aground near Chichester. There was no sign of Upton and he was never seen again.

It was a great mystery at the time. The press ran stories about ‘peer’s missing heir’. Among the articles found in the cabin of the deserted boat was Upton’s passport, naming J. J. Thorpe of Lamb Building, Temple, as the person to be contacted in an emergency.

The art expert David Carritt believed that, while in control of Upton’s affairs during 1952-4, Thorpe had helped himself to more of Upton’s money than he was entitled to. Three years later, Upton had discovered this, and was threatening to use the information to blackmail Thorpe, who consequently (so Carritt’s story went) arranged for a couple of handsome toughs to join Upton on his boat and dispose of him at sea. [244]


Peter Howells, was involved in a particularly effective honey trap. He owned a theatrical agency for children, with offices in London and Amsterdam. It was called Bovver Boots. Howells is a convicted paedophile who has also been named in police statements by children from Hackney in north London who say that they were abused, photographed and filmed. Dutch police who visited Howells’ houseboat on Prinzengracht in Amsterdam found the walls papered with obscene photographs of young boys. [64]

Frank has since told British police that Spinks and his friends were involved in producing films in which children were raped and killed. Edward, too, was close to Spinks and Frank at this time. He claims to have seen five videos which were produced by Spinks and Frank and Frank’s boyfriend, in which young boys were abused and murdered. There is one particular video which he has described for Network First with terrible clarity. There was a man, he says, “who was allowed to do anything he wanted” to a boy. They were on a boat and, he says, he saw the boy choke to death while being orally raped by the man: “There was sound on the camera. You could hear the waves slapping against the side of the boat, you could hear noises of water fowl in the background, you could hear the boy gagging, you could hear the man grunting [64]

Abuse on Cruise Ships

There is greater risk of sexual assault at sea than an american city and cruise lines are not legally obliged to report sexual assaults of children, or any crimes for that matter!  Information is therefore hard to come by on sexual assaults at sea, but one method is from court cases. There is a long list of sexual assaults at sea, 2009 – 2012 from Cruise Junkie site, some of which are child sexual abuse, here [62]

Paul Trotter was a play area supervisor and he was jailed for 4 years in 2012 for spanking boys aged 7-13 and filming it, and possession of other indecent images. He did this on Cunard cruise ships Queen Victoria, the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary. [105] [61]

Another method abuse happens is by crew using key passes to enter rooms when parents have gone to their evening meal.

There is good information on cruise boats and child abuse here [60] and hence how to avoid it.

Royal Navy and ex Royal Navy Abusers

Despite being common, buggery was an offence in the Royal Navy. Henry VIII made it a capital offence and in 1627 it was specifically made a hanging offence.  As for child abuse, a sailor in 1757 was given 500 lashes for buggering a boy and a Lieutenant William Berry was hanged in 1807 for the same offence. The author concludes that whatever may have gone on beneath the poop deck, sex with boys at sea was never openly tolerated in the Royal Navy, let alone made a fixture of the officers’ mess [6]. There are some books referenced on this subject on that link.

“A ‘peg-boy’ is a young male who prostitutes himself to homosexuals; ‘peg-house’, a homosexual brothel. There is an unsubstantiated story that boys in East Indian peg-houses were required to sit on pegs between customers, giving them permanently dilated anuses.” [6] It is interesting that this is East India and possibly linked to the times of the East India Company, the worlds first Corporation.

The Navy been 500 years collecting “intelligence” which then was converted into mind control techniques at Tavistock which can be used to manipulate children into being raped. [237]

The following are some examples of child molesters that are or have been in the Royal Navy. It is not comprehensive nor a random sample.

However they do raise the question of whether the people that join or experience the armed forces or in particular the Royal Navy have a higher prevalence of being child abusers than the rest of the population.  Is there something intrinsic about being in the Armed forces, Royal Navy, taining, being on a ship or the trauma of war or PTSD that is a factor in a higher level of child abuse?

Royal Family and the Navy

Several members of the Royal Family have been in the Royal Navy.

The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip served in the Royal Navy from 1939 to 1952, seeing active service throughout the Second World War. He is Admiral of the Royal Yacht Squadron. In 1948 the Island Sailing Club gave the Dragon Bluebottle to Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh as a wedding present in which he competed at many regattas including Cowes week. It was on the Duke of Edinburgh’s request that, in 1962, the royal family should buy Bloodhound, a 63ft Camper and Nicholson on which he cruised extensively with Prince Charles and Princess Anne.[236]


The Prince of Wales Prince Charles  also served in the Royal Navy and also trained in the Royal Air Force.

The Duke of YorkPrince Andrew served for over 20 years as an officer in the Royal Navy before leaving the Service in 2001. He flew as a second pilot in Sea King Helicopters on anti-submarine and transport duties during the Falklands conflict in 1982.

Lord Mountbatten has been covered in a previous section but I note here that his official biographer Philip Ziegler states that the most usual practice for aspirant naval officers was to go to the Royal Naval College at Osborne on the Isle of Wight at the age of 12 and continue at Dartmouth a couple of years later [p32]. Osborne was full of bullying and corporal punishement – birch rod on a bare stern [p37]. The ships were full of violence too.[249]


Tony Blair has recently hired a yacht [250]. Blair it is said, used to use the name Miranda and was was caught importuning men in toilets in his younger days [254]. Blair is accused of covering up, perhaps by means of a D notice, the connections to one of his ministers in Operation Ore [256], and covering up of child abuse by one of his ministers in Lambeth in a childrens home [255]  [257] .

Peter Mandelson had a infamous meeting on Oleg Deripaska’s yacht Queen K as a guest of Nathaniel Rothschild. Afterwards various allegations of a non sexually abusive nature flew around in some sort of bitchfest with George Osborne and Rothschild [251]. Mandelson is thought to be a key figure in being able to help unravel child sexual abuse in Lambeth [252], whilst George Osborne is known to have snorted cocaine and used the dominatrix services of Natalie Rowe [253]

Appendix 1  Information on Boats from Dunblane Unburied by Sandra Uttley

Hamilton at the age of 25 owned a 40 foot motor cruiser. He appears to have bought it for £5,000 from a friend in Central Scotland Police. Within 3 years it was destroyed by a gas cylinder exploding on board and he received a payout of £36,000 from the insurance company. William MacDonald, a former policeman with Central Scotland Police and his wife went sailing with Hamilton as did Katherine and Ewan Anderson. During the 1970s Hamilton met members and formed relationships with the Central Scotland Police Diving team at Loch Lomond – Michael Mill (who became Chief Inspector) and Anthony Bushnell. [p19,20] Mr Mill was an acting Chief Inspector in the Police.

Mills gave evidence that Hamilton also owned a small speed boat called Lady Sheila, before he then purchased another boat, a large cabin cruiser called Tropical Winter. The boat caught fire on the Strathclyde side of Loch Lomond and drifted over to Balmaha Bay and sank just off Inchmoan island. Mill as a member of the underwater unit had to help retrieve it in one of their weekly visits to Loch Lomond. [p27,28]

Mrs Haggers son, on camps for boys on Loch Lomond was thrown off a boat without a life jacket into the water, despite his terror of water. Hamilton had made her son take all his clothes off, had taken them from him and made him put shorts on.[p57]

Nothing was documented by Cullen about the boat, which was seized by police and given or sold to Hamilton, without record of payment. Apparently there was no complaint about the boat being seized from its owner. A boat was seized by Strathclyde police on Loch Lomond, which is a rare thing in the uk. Normally there is a trial and only seized if connected to the proven crime and then sold by public auction. Why was the valuable  boat sold without auction to Hamilton and the boats owner never complained? Was it blackmail? [p105, 106]

William McDonalds evidence. Hamiltons Boat with an onboard engine on Loch Lomond kept at Balmaha 27 foot. That was sold and he got another one which went on fire. [p127, 128]

Donald Cowan Police sergeant with Central Scotland Police went with the MacDonald family to Hamiltons boat on one or two occasions when Hamilton was not there.[p127, 128]

Parents took their children in July and Aug 1998 to Balmaha Boat yard where children were taken by boat to Inchmoan Island and met by Hamilton. Only one boat which was used to fetch supplies from mainland. [p175]

Children stayed between 1 and 6 weeks on the island with Hamilton. During this time a number of incidents occurred when children were assaulted by Hamilton as punishment for misbehaviour or failing to perform exercises to expectation. Boat examined by police and found to have insufficient life jackets. All children were wearing black swiming trunks [p175]

Anonymous said…I think that the supposed suicides of three policemen within a few of days of each other around the time the Jersey story broke is also highly suspicious. Although not mentioned in the link Neil Munro was rumoured to have been investigating the yachting community after allegations of children from the Jersey homes being loaned out to wealthy yachtsman. Another policeman Richard Fuller was a member of the Royal protection team. I personally think this could have something to do with Lord Mountbatten as well, who was reported to have been involved with the abuse at Kincora boys’ home in Ireland. It’s also been alleged that a second cousin to the Queen was involved in a paedophile ring that involved Thomas Hamilton, the Dunblane killer. Could that be Mountbatten again? There was also a photograph published in a paper which showed Jimmy Saville leaving the Jersey home, which has now disappeared out of circulation, and in the link below it mentions Saville’s possible connection to Mountbatten.

The exemplary trial of the School by boat

A sailboat sailing on the seas, adventure and utopia, school differently, gilded and naked “pupils” on the bridge, all this has run aground between the four enclosed walls of the Assize Court of Paris. For the founder of the School by boat, Léonide Kameneff, 76, sentenced to twelve years of criminal imprisonment, there is no longer any dream but, according to the reasoning of the judgment delivered on Friday 22 March, the brutal reality of “Rape and sexual assault committed on very young boys for more than twenty years”, more freedom but “an almost sectarian conditioning for particularly vulnerable children”, more pedagogical ideal but “a psychological hold To satisfy sexual urges “. And there is not even the circumstance of a “supposedly permissive time” – that of the years after May 1968 – but “a deviant and deeply traumatic sexuality for the victims.”

Two other defendants, Bernard Poggi, aged 60 – who had himself been abused as a child by Léonide Kameneff – and Jean-François Tisseyre, 58, now severely disabled, were convicted and sentenced respectively To 6 years firm and 5 years with reprieve. The fourth accused, a minor at the material time, was acquitted.

From school to boat, today we have three weeks of exemplary trial. It took all four walls, this incessant confrontation between the accused and the dozen civil parties – adults today between the ages of 33 and 46 – to express what had been buried for so long. The words of the children of yesterday, who carried their shame and were silent before the illusions and the certainty of having done well with their parents. That of these parents, gnawed with anger and guilt. But also the accused. Violent and painful for Bernard Poggi, now the father of three children, recognizing at the helm that he had indeed been “this pedophile, this predator, this bastard”, but also before the court and the jurors, United the founder of the school by boat, who had initiated him to sexuality during a voyage at sea when he was twelve years old. The speech was slower and more complex for Léonide Kameneff, defending on the first day of the trial the ideal world of “removing the barriers between adults and minors” that he wanted to create, recognizing at best “sharing of caress and tenderness” , And cringing, ten days later, after the last testimony of a former resident, to admit sexual assault and rape.

This trial had his principal accused acquitted, time. This “time wasted, wasted” by long years of judicial inertia which, as acknowledged by the attorney-general Bruno Sturlese, “had an evident sifting effect” of the file of accusation, avoiding prosecutions some close adults Of the school by boat and dropping the blade of the prescription on the charges brought by some thirty former boarders who came to testify as witnesses. This time had to falsify the judgment and prevent understanding of an era of which Léonide Kameneff, reader of Roland Barthes and Michel Foucault, was the fruit. “To those who say: do not deceive you of time, I reply, do not deceive yourself from trial!” Said the prosecutor, addressing the court and the jury: “You do not judge alternative schools, you consider a much more fundamental issue, which is that of sexual acts committed by adults on children “.

This risk was swept aside by the power of the audience of assizes, where everyone held his role. A president, Olivier Leurent, leading the debates with infinite tact and knowing how to move the lines, seize the moment of the confession that years of instruction had not obtained. An attorney-general who observes, avoids unnecessarily hurtful words, feeds on the audience and adjusts his indictment. Besides, his demands for punishment, which were carefully hierarchized, were more moderate than those pronounced by the court. A lawyer of the civil party, Me Eric Morain, carrying without ever skid the speech of the former pupils of the School by boat. A defense lawyer, Yann Choucq guiding Leonid Kameneff towards an admission of guilt to which he had so long refused and not hesitating to go beyond what his client acknowledged. “I have a certainty that somewhere in this story there was love, as enormous as this word can appear in this courtroom,” said Choucq in his pleading. If I understand that you have loved these children, Leonide Kameneff, I must tell you that you loved them too much, and that you did not like them, because you confused two things: the sensuality of the child and the sexuality of The dream is today broken and you

    Kathy, hi.

    Some of the detail information with regard to Clifford Luton’s address and with references to the North Sea Cruising Association probably need updating.

    The correct address for the N. S. C. A. is: The Vicarage, 539 Ashley road, Parkstone, Poole, Dorset.

    This address I will never ever forget as I suffered abuse at the hands of Clifford Luton and in particular a certain Mr Neil Hocquart now deceased.

    It is with a great feeling of sadness but hope that I finally found and read through the above piece about the ‘business’ of boats and abuse. For decades I have been suspicious of the presence of a paedophile ring surrounding the North Sea Cruising Association. In spite of this awareness it was not until 2012 that I finally summed the courage to release to the Police details of my abuse and that of others who attended the ‘sailing school’ through the early eighties.

    The Police have proven unable to apply any penalty to Clifford as his case was turned over on the apparent health issues of Mr Luton.

    I shall not dwell here upon the resulting issues of my life over the last thirty plus years since then other than to say that today as I sit here and write, I and many others remain as unrecognised victims of this ring. With reference to Neil Hocquart in particular who afflicted huge damage upon me through several occasions of what I would consider to be the most serious levels of abuse.

    I remain upbeat but to date neither the Police nor any lawful body has effected any charges or open public acknowledgement of the happenings at the North Sea Cruising Association and through it’s trustees (of which Neil Hocquart was one).
