The sub on the breaking berth is either Oppossum or Opportune with the old target vessel Bullseye alongside. The latter was resold o the Spanish and recommissioned as a trawler.

Staffs, this was a recent picture taken at Pounds (July 09) http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/187990/ppuser/2175
Ships currently at Pounds - HMS Stalker, The King Harry floating bridge No6, tank barge Greendale H and few remains of HMS Volage.
Since this picture was taken the Greendale has been further demolished up to the wheelhouse. The barge seen in the picture brings land scrap from time to time.
