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

If you wanted to see the Rolling Stones today you would not get much change out of £100.

But in the early 1960s when they were making a name for themselves you could see the original five on stage at Portsmouth Guildhall for just 33p. Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, Keith Richards and Bill Wyman, now household names, all came here on tour.

And they were not even top of the bill as John Leyton (Johnny Remember Me) and Mike Sarne (Come Outside) upstaged them.
