Interesting what turns up in boxes! Here are a couple of 'official' photographs - I am still guessing the date but I do kmow the location!
- This is one of the formal photographs taken at Emsworth House (Havant Road, Emsworth, Hampshire) - probably before it was closed down.
This was a Naval research centre - part of Portsmouth Docktard really - my brother Philip Howard Newnham worked there as a Scientific Officer -
he is third in from the lhs middle row (by the two girls). I remember much research was into corrosion - there were sample plates all around Emsworth Harbour
- in / part in / and out of the sea water - think much was spent trying to stop the Royal Yacht "Brittania" from rusting!!
Emsworth House is still there - a nursing home these days!!
