The Portsmouth Dockyard newspaper “Trident” was published monthly between 1969 and 1994. Sister papers at the other Dockyards were entitled: “Periscope” at Chatham, “Spotlight” at Rosyth, and “Devonport News”. The stated aim of Trident was to “tell everyone in the Yard and such establishments as the Victualling Yard and Armaments Depot across the sea what is going on around them”.
Volunteers are indexing extracts from the papers, referencing: Named Individuals, Ships, And Articles (relating Dockyard happenings in any other category). So far we have completed the indexing of all editions of the paper published in 1969, 1970 & 1971 but more will be added to the data base as work progresses.
