22 March

Today in Gosport’s Past:-  on 22 March 2015, Stokes Bay was extremely busy as sightseers and photographers flocked to see the USS “Theodore Roosevelt”, an American aircraft carrier, anchored in the Solent; at the same time, the destroyer USS “Winston S Churchill” arrived, but was of a size more suited to the restrictions of Portsmouth harbour, and she moored at the north end of the dockyard. Road traffic was, as is to be expected, heavy, especially along and near the bay.
