Battleships/Battle Cruisers therefore probably pre war. Working on the names.

Superb picture thanks for posting that. Back in the days when we had a navy!

Right Chris, days never to be seen again, I shudder to think what my old dad would say if he were to see the state of Portsmouth Yard today.

You should've seen it in 1985, filthy, tatty and squalid dump. It's a hundred times better now.

I think Phill was referring to the lack of ships rather than its cleanliness?

Yes my comment was referring to the lack of ships, as for condition, think what it was like for an apprentice in 64, 1964 that is!!
