Restored WWII motorboats on display at Portsmouth





Two boats that were used by the Allied forces in World War II have been saved from the scrapyard or sale abroad and will go on display in Portsmouth.

One of the vessels, a Royal Navy MGB81 motorboat, was used at the D-Day landings and is thought to be Britain's last surviving WWII gunboat.

The other one is an RAF rescue boat, high-speed launch 102.

Both have been restored by enthusiasts and bought with money from the National Heritage Memorial Fund and donors.
