Mary Rose Crane 1982

If my memory serves me right, this was taken in 1982. We’d gone down to Southampton Docks to have a look at some Polish Tall Ships (stern of one in left of image) and this special crane. This was a few days before it was moved down to the Solent, the stretch of water between Portsmouth and the Isle Of Wight, to raise the remains of the Mary Rose.

She was a dreadnought of her day! Seriously armed but a little unstable in design. To read a lot more click here  http://www.maryrose.org
