Mr Monkey in Portsmouth, 28th August

"It's a little spiky, that monument"

Mr Monkey looking at the HMS Shannon memorial Mr Monkey outside Mozzarella Joe's

Mr Monkey looked at another monument, this time to the men and officers of HMS Shannon who fought in India between August 1857 and August 1858, assisting in the relief of Lucknow and winning five Victoria Crosses. Mr Monkey's humans realised they were hungry and went for a meal at Mozzarella Joe's. When they'd finished it was dark and Mr Monkey scampered back to his hotel.

You can read about the Shannon monument at the Memorials and Monuments in Portsmouth website and about the restaurant at the Mozzarella Joes website.
