HM Naval Base Portsmouth

I served in Portsmouth's Naval Schools of Gunnery, Signals, and Navigation taking my Sub Lieutenant's course in 1941. Post war I was appointed to HMS Vernon at Portsmouth in 1946, as part of my courses to qualify as a Specialist Torpedo- Anti Submarine Officer.

This ancient Naval Port is steeped in history, but is totally changed today from my first visit back in 1941.

History of Portsmouth is taken from the Royal Navy History Site.
