This statue stands outside the D-Day Museum in Southsea on Clarence Esplanade and was unveiled in 1997. The Grizzly was a Canadian-built M4A1 Sherman tank with some modifications. It had thicker, more sloping armour, had a longer range and notably was fitted with Canadian Dry Pin tracks (CDP) which did not require rubber, a scarce wartime material. It was used by the Canadian Army in WW2 from 1943-1945 and later by Portugal.

Brittany Ferry from Caen to Portsmouth from here.

This was a heavy British infantry tank used in WW2.

Built in 1544 this castle was part of a series of fortifications built around England's coast by Henry VIII to protect the country against invaders. No sooner had it been completed than Henry VIIIs flagship the Mary Rose sank near to the castle. Nearly a century later, during the English Civil War, the castle was captured for the only time by the Parliamentarians.

The memorial outside the Royal Marines Museum to the Royal Marines involvement in the Falklands War in 1982.

This museum, situated on the seafront at Southsea, is set in striking Victorian surroundings and includes a medal room which displays ten Victoria Crosses awarded to Royal Marines as well as the Museum's collection of 8,000 medals.
