Five adjacent pubs in Portsmouth, Hampshire
Portsmouth was a town of many wonders in 1911. One of them was the possession of five fully licensed houses standing next to each other. They faced the Harbour so that the hardy sailor did not have far to look for refreshment on landing. From left to right: the Queen's Head, The Old London, The King & Queen, The Ship Anson, and the Victoria & Albert.

Canteen van - tea for anti-aircraft gun crew
Raiders overhead! Mugs of tea provided from a canteen car - the greatest boon to anti-aircraft crews, who, month after month stuck by their guns and shot down so many Luftwaffe aircraft. Date: circa 1941
