A two-year-old David Copus with his aunt Florrie and the FA Cup during a street party down Frogmore Road in 1945.

Unlike today, there was no need for security for the famous trophy as fans were allowed to pose for pictures with the silverware.

Pompey had kept the FA Cup since winning it in 1939 throughout the Second World War.
