The members of more than forty community groups have knitted a 400-metre long scarf for a submarine in Hampshire.
More than two hundred people took part in the project - they knitted 1,337 squares to make the finished piece for the vessel which is based at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport.
It is all part of a fun scheme to 'keep the submarine warm' during the winter - an initiative to bring the museum and the local community together.
“We are very grateful and totally amazed with results from our local knitters. Knitting has a long tradition in the Royal Navy, from the much loved woolly submarine jumpers to mending clothing while at sea. This community project has been a perfect way to develop interest in HMS Alliance”**
