Dockyard Workers Recognition.
A commemorative plaque was unveiled by the Lord Mayor & Lady Mayoress today at Boathouse No 7. This superbly crafted plaque is in honour of the dedication and labours of civilian and military personnel who were involved with the enhancement, support and repair of the 39 ships that were worked on within Portsmouth Dockyard.
Naval Base commander - Commodore Jeremy Bailey RN gave an opening address and went on to thank Andrew Cave (who originated the idea) Dennis Miles and Nigel Linger from Portsmouth Royal Dockyard Historical Trust, BAE Systems, Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust and BAE Systems machinist apprentice Rohann Pearce.
The plaque is displayed at the entrance to the Apprentices exhibition within Boathouse No 7.
