The original knitted sailor can be found in our HMS gallery in Portsmouth. He was created by Gus Britton who made the sailor, representing himself including signals on one of the arms.
Gus followed in his fathers footsteps, who served aboard HMS Caroline, one of our newest attractions which you can now visit in Belfast.
Gus himself then served on HMS Alliance, our submarine in Gosport. Gus was a huge supporter of the Submarine Museum and we are thrilled to have brought this wonderful sailor to our shops in honour of this amazing man.
