Product description

When Eastney Barracks, Portsmouth, closed in 1991 it was the end of an era for the Royal Marines and for the surrounding community.

Andrew Lane, Curator of the Royal Marines Museum, has trawled through the wide-ranging archives in the Museum to produce the first extensive photographic record of Eastney and the Barracks, The 170 photographs in the book reveal the wide variety of life and activities there, the landmarks, people and events. This book will be essential reading for all those interested in the Eastney Barracks, the Royal Marines in general, or the rich history of Portsmouth.
