Five adjacent pubs in Portsmouth, Hampshire
Portsmouth was a town of many wonders in 1911. One of them was the possession of five fully licensed houses standing next to each other. They faced the Harbour so that the hardy sailor did not have far to look for refreshment on landing. From left to right: the Queen's Head, The Old London, The King & Queen, The Ship Anson, and the Victoria & Albert.

Soldiers and Sailors Buffet at Paddington Station, 1919
A shot capturing the last servicemen to be offered refreshments at the Soldiers and Sailors Free Buffet at Paddington Station on 28th June 1919. The forces canteen opened in April 1915 to offer sustenance to the servicemen who passed through Paddington during the war years. It was staffed day and night by a dedicated group of more than 80 female volunteers who, during the four years that the Buffet was open, served refreshments to more than 3 million men. The soldier sitting in the corner seat was himself a Great Western man, possibly on his journey home from active duty
