The Mary Rose trust is organising a 25th anniversary reunion for divers who took part in raising the historic warship.

The Mary Rose is the only 16th century warship on display anywhere in the world. Built between 1509 and 1511, she was one of the first ships able to fire a broadside, and was a firm favourite of King Henry VIII.

After a long and successful career, she sank accidentally during an engagement with the French fleet in 1545. Her rediscovery and raising were seminal events in the history of nautical archaeology.

The reunion is to be held on 10th, 11th and 12th October in Portsmouth.
