Afew days ago I wrote about the book that my wife had acquired for me at the Alverstoke Michelmas Fair. The books is about the Soldiers of the Queen, the military in Gosport.
It starts around the middle of the eighteenth century. Many of the buildings that serviced the military have gone, but many remain and are still used. There are a couple that I walk past every day.
The book has some interesting maps of the area inclluding St Vincent and the Gosport surrounds. It is really fascinating to be able to walk around the area.
