Two more mystery pictures from the Remember When files today.

The first and most recent shows a group at a party in probably the 1940s or 50s.

Do you know who these people are and the occasion?

The word ‘Gosport’ appears on the back of the print and one legible name – Derek Brown.

The only other clue on the reverse is ‘VJ’, although if it were a VJ party from 1945 you would think there might be the odd Union Flag on show.

The second photograph was taken by Stephen Cribb, the famous Portsmouth photographer from the early part of the last century.

A caption says its shows Portsea Parish Scouts in 1918.

Can anyone throw any light on either of these pictures?
