A little fuzzy perhaps but here we see Portsdown Hill Road where it meets London Road. The George pub would be on the right behind the soldiers. 'Picture: Barry Cox Collection

NOSTALGIA: PoWs forced to cut height of Portsdown Hill

Have your say

With the forthcoming celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, I hope to see lots of photographs coming in from the time of her coronation.

Vicki Henderson (nee White) sent in one she thinks was taken by her late father, Vic, on Coronation Day – June 2, 1953.

Vicki was born and lived at 30 Rudmore Road in Portsmouth, while her grandparents were just along the road at number 9.

Vicki can be seen sitting on her sister Janet’s lap, bottom centre. At the bottom on the right hand side is another sister, Gene. But who are all the other smiling faces?

If you know, do drop me a line or e-mail. Thank you.
