HUNDREDS of retired submariners from across the world converged on Portsmouth this week for a convention.
More than 250 sailors from 22 nations came to the city for the 52nd International Submariners’ Congress.
The four-day gathering included a service of remembrance at Southsea War Memorial.
The delegates visited Arundel Castle, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and Portsmouth Football Club, and rounded off their stay in the city with a gala dinner at the Guildhall.
Among the submariners attending the memorial service at Southsea was Commander Andy Green, Portsmouth Naval Base Executive Officer.
He said: ‘It was a very moving ceremony and it was a pleasure to meet so many submariners from different nations.’
