The Smith and Vosper baker's delivery wagon in Portsmouth about the time of the First World War. It was this picture which brought back so many memories for reader Norman Hall.

Regular contributor Pam Gran, from Cosham, sent me the picture on the right which was published in the Evening News on May 9, 1935.

It was taken in Frederick Street, Landport, Portsmouth, the now tiny road which is behind Sainsbury’s.

The occasion was the silver jubilee of George V.

Pam says her father, Arthur Clark, was born in the street in 1924 and lived there most of his life.

Len Foot e-mailed the second photograph here of HMS Duke of York, a King George V-class battleship.

She was Len’s first ship. He joined her as a Boy Telegraphist in 1947.

He writes: ‘I arrived from HMS Ganges at the Harbour Station and in those days there was a railway line across The Hard to South Railway jetty at which the Duke of York was berthed.’
