Action Stations at Portsmouth Historic Dockyards really does have all the best backdrops for original series Star Trek photos.

I just need to come up with some new poses for McCoy other than ‘intently studying something’.

Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy cosplay by me.

Sinking of the Mary Rose

19 July 1545

The Mary Rose, the pride of King Henry VIII’s naval fleet, sank in the Solent while leading an attack on the galleys of a French invasion fleet on this day in history, 19 July 1545. The sunken ship was discovered in 1971 and a salvage operation began in 1982. It is currently in the final stages of conservation and a magnificent museum exists at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to showcase the warship’s remains.
