NAVY DAY, PORTSMOUTH

Grid Ref:
Dates: 1 August 2010

Navy Day at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard gives the public an opportunity to go aboard warships. In association with the Mary Rose and H.M.S. Victory there are re-enactment groups from the Tudor and Napoleonic Wars Periods. Here are some portraits of the characters who attended in 2010. It was a wonderful day out for family groups.
