What's the current weather like in Gosport? (Link)

Gosport from the air.

Not complete without the Navy.

Portsmouth, of course, is home to the Royal Navy; and Gosport is just the other side of the water from Portsmouth.

No article on Gosport would be complete without some reference to the Navy. Standing on 'the hard' by the ferry landing stage is a good vantage point to watch the ships depart or arrive.

If you get hold of a copy of the 'Navy News' , (available at most stationers in the area), you can find when Royal Navy ships will be arriving or departing.

The Picture:
If you look closely at the picture, you will see a long white pennant trailing backward. This means that the ship has returned to be decommissioned. (Paying off).
