The Vikings are coming

Have your say

With the farewell to the American carrier George Bush last week after the invasion of several thousand of its crew, I wonder how many of you remember when a slightly smaller vessel sailed up Stokes Bay?

Can any of you recall when the Vikings invaded sometime back in 1947-48?

I received this photograph from Colin Shepherd of Zetland Road, Gosport who tells me that this replica longship was seen off the coast, perhaps as part of some re-enactment.

If you have a reference or remember it, can you drop me a line please.

Thank you.
