21 July

Today in Gosport’s Past:-  on 21st July 1982, aircraft carrier HMS “Hermes” and the frigate HMS “Broadsword” returned to Portsmouth after serving in the South Atlantic Falklands War. Looking more than a little world-weary, they recieved a well deserved heroes’ welcome from vast crowds on both sides of the harbour. Here are my personal photos of “Hermes” return, and of the many people who turned out in droves to cheer them back home.
