Featured in A love of BoatsThe Gun Deck of HMS Victory Portsmouth UK.I am a huge fan of Alexander Kents novels (amongst others) and this really gave me a feel of the horrors and conditions that the sailors experienced.

Wow great image. What a thing to see and photograph. :)
Thanks so much Anna.It was an awesome day there.I have a real love of Tall Ships so Portsmouth was right up there for me especially to be on board the Victory and get a feel for its history.It is also such an experience to know that you have walked on decks that were at the Battle of Trafalgar.Glad that you like it.
Very well done! You can almost see the sailors manning the guns.
Thanks Very much Dale.I really appreciate the comments.
