Have your say

IT WAS 1977 and Margaret Thatcher spent a day in Portsmouth.

Mrs T, moving at the double as she always did, went shopping among the fruit and veg stalls in Charlotte Street off Commercial Road. She bought four large grapefruit at 9p each.

It was here she was pictured with three young women.

This picture was stored in our archives and was published today. But we have no information about who these three women are.

Do you recognise these women or are you one of them pictured with Mrs Thatcher?
