Hi everyone,
Just a quick visit. Operation on Wednesday then two weeks off. Posting two old photo's of Portsmouth Harbour in the winter of 1963. Anyone remember this. Sorry about the quality,
regards,
Bob

Hi Edna/Mel,

Moved your posts to this new location, as am trying to keep KC's article on topic, i.e Portsmouth Dockyard 1901 (or turn of the century at least)

Dave,

Bob posted that in November 2008 ..!! Although this is a new thread, it has some old posts in it that I moved from previous threads. Apologies if it has caused confusion.
