VETERANS who served on board battleship HMS Ramillies will be treated to a model boat display.

Portsmouth Model Boat Display Team will show off its collection of sailing ships and Second World War vessels to the former crew at Canoe Lake, Southsea, on Wednesday, April 17.

During the day veterans and their families will also be attending a service at St Anne’s Church, at Portsmouth Naval Base. HMS Ramillies served in the First and Second World Wars. She was launched on June 12, 1916 and commissioned the year after.
