NOSTALGIA: Bottom blown out of Trafalgar veteran too costly to maintain

Have your say

I’m planning a series of Remember When features about what you got up to in summers past and would love to see your photographs from the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s.

Pictures which show what you got up to on the beach, at festivals or on outings in the wider Portsmouth area. And what about those crazy fashions? Anything which reminds us that they did once exist.

Please e-mail them to me at or by post to Chris Owen, The News Centre, London Road, Hilsea, Portsmouth, Hants PO2 9SX.
