Portland has a strong Royal Navy tradition and one that is immortalised with the Royal Navy Cemetery on the Isle. The cemetery overlooks the former naval base and is quiet place of reflection for the families of those sailors remembered there including Seaman Jack Mantle, killed on 4 July 1940 during a German air raid on Portland; Mantle although mortally wounded manned his gun until he died earning himself a posthumous Victoria Cross for his actions.

A very tranquil spot overlooking the great Portland Harbour, the former Royal navy base. Every gravestone tells a story. For the context see Dorset, The Royal Navy (Dovecote Press) by Stuart Morris - Stuart Morris
