The City of Portsmouth has a long and distinguished history, much of it closely associated with the Armed Forces. This is reflected in the number of memorials, both Civilian and Military within the city. These pages are dedicated to the memory of all of those men, women and children commemorated on them.


This web site is dedicated to the Dockyard School staff, the January 1951 Entry Shipwrights and the IVth year upper-school students during their period 1954 to 1955.

Although it contains content with some photographs to jog memories it goes further by giving a background to the birth and death of the dockyard schools, that became a beacon for educational excellence at home and abroad. And as added interest, there are links to the history of Portsmouth Royal Dockyard and the support given to the Royal Navy over the centuries.


This site was brought to our attention by Alexandra Fuller who wanted to let us know how much her son, Adam, enjoyed the Naval / Maritime history on our Dockyard site. He wanted to share the articles on this site regarding the history of shipbuilding. This is just the sort of interaction we are seeking to foster with the public and are delighted to add the link as requested.
