One of the privileges of being involved with Solent Protection Society is that we occasionally get to see historic sites in the area that are not generally accessible by the public. So when Solent Forum (of which SPS is a member) were invited by the QHM (Queen’s Harbour Master) to hold their meeting at HMS Nelson, we leapt at the chance
The historic building housing the wardroom is a monument to naval history, with many famous battles being recorded on the balustrades of the main staircase
Corridors and walls have many paintings, though it can be very difficult to find a workable camera angle,
In the dining room there are huge murals, but the sunlight streaming in through the windows produced glare that was difficult to handle. This is the best we could manage.
There are also numerous fascinating artifacts, including a beautiful model of a frigate made by French prisoners of war from soup bones! But the glare from the glass case and the mirror beyond make photography almost impossible!
