NOSTALGIA: The order that triggered a riot and made Royal Navy history

Have your say

This portrait of a family of, perhaps, eastern European extraction was sent in by a Mr Russell.

Are they refugees who ended up in Portsmouth?

Maybe they are Displaced Persons who went to the Bedhampton DPs Camp?

The gentleman to the right is wearing an English lapel badge and possibly a maple leaf tie pin.

The lad to the left has his jacket buttoned up on the wrong side.

If you know of this family, please get in touch.
