12 Portsmouth Details

By LynneJoyce  
More Portsmouth shots, following the tourist trail and leading with a shot of The Victory's immensely complex bow, mast and rigging. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take photos on board but it was an interesting tour nonetheless. There are 11 other shots, all with their own captions. I hope they will give you an insight to the fascination of the place for me.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy at least some of them.

All of these are just superb Lynne, and it has been really difficult to choose between them. However, there is something extra special for me in V7 - just lovely!

What a lovely series you've gathered here. My vote goes to V7 which is rather special with those lovely reflections and tones, though V8 is extremely appealing too. I do rather covet those wonderful copper containers but not having to keep them in that wonderful well-polished condition!

A superb variety of shots, some showing great detail and others with super compositon and content. Lovely images Lynne.

An excellent set of photographs Lynne. I'm affraid I can't help you with the quotation on the wheels in V3, but I can tell you that large ships become very hard to stear in heavy weather. As there wasn't anything like power stearing then, they just added more men to the job. I seem to remember that on HMS Warrior, there are three (four?) sets of wheels - one set on each deck - and they needed them. There was also a foot brake that could be used to assist. Stearing positions on lower decks were also neccessary incase the positions on other decks were damaged/destroyed in combat.

All the best,

Hello Lynne, I love them all but my favourite has to be The Victory. The ship is an absolute stunner. It is a shame to see Arc Royal now de-commissioned but hopefully it may remain in Portsmouth along with the other ships.
I am a fan of the writings of Douglas Reeman under his pseudonym of Alexander Kent and the series on Richard Bolitho, so that may explain my love for the old sailing warships. Regards, Richard

You will note in The Victory shot some tenting where maintenance work was being undertaken - painting I think - hence the missing figurehead.
Gorgeous set of images

all very well taken as per.
