Pompey News: "HMS Victory Ready For Restoration"

Victory has been undergoing a rolling programme of restoration since 1926. Big And Expensive obviously see a profit in the work, but lets hope they don't see the akers until the end of the contract.

It would pay them to keep it sea worthy, the way the defence cuts are going, we'll have it out shooting at Mr Gaddafi.

That was one of the submissions for this year's Peregrine Trophy contest, although it didn't win.

It's an extremely competitive event, the Peregrine Trophy; I think that some 400 photographs were submitted this year and they were all very, very good. The exhibition at Trinity House had all the winners in one large room, but other entries were in an adjacent room and you could see that even the ones which weren't selected for a prize were really remarkably good.

I really like the one you have used for this article actually. The way it is lit appeals to me.
