Yes indeed, me buckaroos, that's how Portsmouth punts Blighty's nautical heritage, as a suitably shaken Igor Z can attest. Mr Z admits his gasts were well and truly flabbered when he spotted this "brutally honest portrayal" of seafaring life at Winchester Station.

Well, that's all well and good, but we imagine that when the Daily Mail gets hold of this, it'll be keelhauling, plank-walking and a touch o' the cat for the lot of 'em. ®
