Happy days at Weymouth

Did two work-ups in Portland, Antrim as a new ship 1970 and Eskimo post refit'73. Bit hectic to say the least, but runs ashore in Weymouth were fucking ace! Walked back to Portland pissed and skint more than once, Bezy pub was The Breakwater, just outside Portland dockyard gate, always a great crowd in there, good for a laugh and the odd bout of fisticuffs, happy days indeed!

The meander down the seafront on Saturday afternoon. On the lookout for girls with NO sun-tan. They'd only just arrived on their Hols. The Prince Albert, that I frequented, is now called 'Finns' I see.

I've posted this before but;- The butchers arms a few streets back? Always reminded me of The Admiral Benbow from treasure island complete with creaking sign. The decor looked as though Charles the 1st had used the place as his horse's urinals.

Finn's now does a lot of live music, Son was playing there on Friday night.

I think I was introduced to Scrumpy there way back in the 60's. And of course you followed the railway line back to Portland!

It’s missing the Black Dog. Didn’t someone thunderflash it once. ? Improved the entrance lobby no end.

Weymouth, 1967. Small group of RNR from Ton class HMS Warsash escaped from Portland to sample the bright lights. Had a very small number of drinks (honest), then were barred from entering a pub ( can't remember which one) because we were matelots and would only cause trouble.

Furious? Far from it. We had been recognised as proper sailors! :)
 
Memory is a bit hazy but I’m sure I reserved - and sort of slept in - an armchair at Aggies in Weymouth one weekend when no rooms were available - and I think it was one of a few so I wasn’t the only one there - can’t remember what the going rate was probably a couple of shillings
