All the young lads seen in the back row of this photograph come from the Portsmouth area.

They were national servicemen serving, about 1954, with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) and were taking part in a guard competition. How they got on is not recorded.

Sitting to the right is Sergeant Vic Jones, who owns the picture.
