Hi everyone,
Posting a few photo's of Veteran's Day 2008 at Southsea. A great day out, it was organised by the Airborne Forces, there were also stands representing the RAF and Royal Navy. Military vehicles were also on display (the Recovery truck is from the TA Unit I joined after leaving the Army) and there were many great displays. I also had the honour to be presented with my Veterans badge. I will post the photo's in groups,
regards,
Bob

Great Photos Bob

I was in Southsea yesterday but knew nothing of the event until I arrived there. I took these few photos, including HMS St Albans pssing the common, but then my camera battery died. I'm glad therefore to be able to see your pics:)

Regards...John

Sorry guys....having trouble uploading the other few. Will try again tomorrow.
