Nostalgia: Channel Fleet visit

editorial image

A number of battleships can been at anchor just off Scarborough’s South Bay as a small flotilla of boats gather to let visitors and locals get a closer look.

Before the outbreak of the first world war the Channel Fleet would often visit the town during the summer months.
