That's a bit ambiguous, where on the South Coast?
Weymouth, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Southampton etc?

Ha Ha 😄😄 Dutchy, brill.
It's just that being in the RN and going on holiday with the sprogs I didn't frequent the other places that you mentioned. But how I omitted Plymouth and Dartmouth I don't know. Maybe I'm thinking of the South Coast and not the South West Coast.

Quite right Dutchy, I'm a bit embarrassed, I began my naval career in Cornwall (Torpoint)

Never been to Exmouth or Falmouth. Are they worth a visit.

Falmouth ..... certainly!  Pubs, pubs, pubs, eateries, Maritime Museum, Pendennis Point/Castle,  day on the local Ferries to St.Mawes and/or up the Fal River to Truro and back, ......... did I mention pubs ?

Edit: and plenty of grey RFA boats in the docks incl. the new supply tankers.

Believe it or not Dutchy, I have never been to Eastleigh, If my memory serves me right that's where the bootnecks are based.
Also, I have never been to Southampton (Merchant rather than Royal)
