That's got to be U.K. but I don't recognize it, so not south or south-east coast.

That's not the Bounty is it? If it is, we could start a thread about it

It's certainly not Australia.
I think it is England. The Pommy part. I think their Harbour is called Gosport.... All the Gosport ladies, they's do the French Can-Can....


I need one of those in this port....

It looks too small for Gosport.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I found out only a year or so back that my mother's family came from here. As an Australian that was nice to know.

Well it's Falmouth then, that's the jetty where Crowhurst, Knox Johnson etc left for the round the world jobbie in the 1960s

It's nothing like Falmouth! I think you are just shooting in the dark hoping to hit something
