World War II motorboats restored


Two motor boats which helped save countless lives during World War II have gone on public display in Portsmouth, alongside more famous ships such as HMS Victory.

The boats, which were involved in the evacuation from Dunkirk and the D-Day landings, among other missions, have been painstakingly restored with a grant from the National Heritage fund.
