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:

Hms Handy, a gunboat built in the late 1800's, more info here:

"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." -

HMRC Vigilant, a customs cutter built in 1901, more info here:

Hms Stalker, canadian built landing ship, more info here:

Hope you liked!
