A nice nostalgic picture. Do you know what year?
Sadly you are right we don't have much of a navy now.

Any idea where and when Jim? A number of the ships seem to have covers over the funnels, so they could be laid-up.

Photograph taken from over the top of Whale Island looking toward Fountain Lake jetty in Portsmouth Dockyard. Looks like either Manxman or Apollo, (three funnels, starboard side to Fountain Lake jetty), the fast minelayers lying inboard of the floating dock.
Timescale 1950\'s early 60\'s

Could well have been early 1960s when Sheffield was Headquarter Ship Reserve Fleet as it looks like a Southampton class cruiser on LHS. Sheffield took over from Vanguard in 1960 as HQ Reserve Fleet.
2 other possible identifications are F23 - Teazer - type 16 conversion and M304 - Waterwitch- Algerine class ocean minesweeper.

Must be mid 50's. When some of us were moved off the Vanguard (early '59) we went on to the M.O.G which was alongside the jetty opposite the Sheffield (which arrived around '58) Sheffield then became Reserve Ships H/Q after I had moved over to Vernon, so it must be in my view earlier than '58/'59 although some of the vessels named by yorky jim were still there in my time as well as a lot of the M.F.V's one of which we use to do trips to France on with a Lt Cmdr who had a thing about Brandy so it was usually to Fe'camp, all done under the guise of evolution training when the engineering section did the Navigating/ Seamanship and the Deck went Blackgang. At that time Pompey was a "Customs Friendly" port for the Navy. The BISCO scheme that was in operation (until around 1962) meant the end of many fine old Warhorses' which are shown in this picture some of them with a proud War History.
