    1911 England Census of 02 April 1911, Portsmouth, Hampshire,
    Royal Sailors Rest among 691 visitors Public - Keith - Researcher - 31 October 2019 - Class: RG14; Piece: 5590; Registration District Number: 90;
    John Armstrong; 23 years; Stoker; Brunnerton, New Zealand
    ;


    Royal Sailors Rest (a.k.a. "Aggie Weston's") 172 -174 Commercial Road, Portsmouth was opened in 1878. That massive building was destroyed on the night of 10/11 January 1941. The Rests were alcohol-free facilities, providing a safe refuge & genuine alternative to the other less wholesome entertainment & accommodation facilities which were available outside a Dockyard.
