Hopefully this is in the right category. This photo is in recogntion of the ship builders without whom there would be no ships.
The Photo was taken by my wifes late uncle who was a fitter at Vosper Thornycrofts Yard in Woolston, Southampton. I believe it was taken on sea trials for HMS Nottingham
3 of the remaining units of our Navy.

Nottingham and Southampton are both products of Vosper Thorneycroft, Woolston and also share distinctions of being piggy-backed to UK during their careers.
