Pompey Pals are looking ahead to 2021 with optimism and have announced plans for a number of events to coincide with key dates that affected Portsmouth and the surrounding area over the last 150 years.
Originally set up in partnership with Portsmouth Football Club to produce a lasting memorial to the Portsmouth Battalions, the Pompey Pals Charity is now a ‘stand alone’ organisation which aims to commemorate all those men and women who served the Portsmouth Region in any capacity, whether at home or abroad.
