My good lady was looking through some old photos and one was of Peasholm park in Scarborough in the early 70s does anyone remember they used to have sea battles with ships that were controlled by men sitting inside they still have them ?I remember them as a boy with bombers on wires coming from the island

I can vouch for them. My parents used to vacation in Scarborough and one of my treats (apart from the fish & chips - with mushy peas) were the battles in Peasholm park. Quite spectacular and might account for my lifelong interest in shipping.

Glad its survived sometimes these type of things get mothballed because they are not politically correct ,I suppose if its the ballet of the river Plate its historical re-enactment
