Default Pounds scrapyard, Portsmouth

Went there about 4 years ago now, I'm sure many people know about this place, by the time I went to take pictures there wasn't as much there, submarines were long gone sadly but there was still quite alot of interesting things to see....




chieftain tank:















A pair of larc lx's, related to dukw or "ducks" more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LARC-LX

































Hms Handy, a gunboat built in the late 1800's, more info here: http://www.nationalhistoricships.org...ion=ship&id=16

"today 20th May Harry Pounds scrapyard foiled a rescue attempt by running a bulldozer through HMS Handy destroying a 130 year old historic ship. A wanton and spiteful act of vandalism which is a disgrace to firm that made its money from the Royal Navy." - http://royal-navy.org/Forum/index.php?topic=306.msg606









HMRC Vigilant, a customs cutter built in 1901, more info here: http://www.vigilant.org.uk/pages/rescue.html





Hms Stalker, canadian built landing ship, more info here: http://nationalhistoricships.org.uk/...ref/1789/pic/1































Hope you liked!
