Radio 4: Comedian Mark Steel Visits The Isle Of Portland

Discussion in 'The Fleet Air Arm' started by soleil, Jun 9, 2011.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A mischievously witty programme that hits its target bang on. It was recorded at the Portland Spa Hotel at Southwell on Portland in early 2009. Unfortunately, the hotel closed owing to lack of business in October of the same year (link). I wonder if the building will be utilised at all during the 2012 Olympics sailing events?

    I was based at Southwell for four happy years when it was still in MoD hands and variously called AUWE / DGUW(Navy) / ARE(S) / MOD(PE) Southwell / DRA / DERA before most of the staff moved to Egdon Hall in Weymouth and eventually to Abbey Wood.
