Minesweeper 293 and part of former lifeboat
My first of what would become a large number of photographs of minesweeper 293 at Forton Lake, Gosport, together with the hooks belonging to a former lifeboat, about which very little is known. By this time the minesweeper had been shored up for well over two decades. Taken on the late afternoon of December 26, 1977.
