In May 1986 the Queen presented a new Colour to the Portsmouth Command of the Royal Navy on the famous parade ground at Whale Island.

A 1,000-strong detachment of sailors paraded in pouring rain for the event having refused the chance to complete inside the drill shed.

Here the Queen shares a joke with a young rating and a wren during a short walkabout in a marquee on the Upper Lawn on the island.
