Default HMS Osborne

If there is a more appropriate site perhaps moderators would adjust !

I see in the Isle of Wight County Press that members of the IW branch of the World Ship Society have been researching the history of HMS Osborne, based at the Seaview Hotel during WW2

The base was the headquarters for several harbour defence motor launches which patrolled the boom that blocked Spithead to German Uboats.

I am sure that some of our members will have some comment on this.
