As I've said some where else, you could really do with a boat to see the remains of the Harbour properly. I'm surprised they didn't seem to do one as the french seem very good at making money out of the remnants of the war.

Great pictures Trooper! Some of the Mulbery harbour components were built at Lepe beach near Calshot Spit near Fawley Oil Refinery. My Dad was involved with the initial sea trials, they towed one around the Isle of Wight and then opened the sea cocks at Lee on Solent. Apparently when they tried to refloat the Mulberry it was stuck fast to the bottom. The Royal Engineers were called in to help, using high pressure pumps they managed to break the suction and get it free. The working party my Dad was a member of was based at Wootton Creek on the Isle of Wight. Unfortunately on the 5th June 1944, he was put on light duties having contacted Inpetigo, and subsequently missed D-Day. He was gutted, alas he was shipped out to Australia to join the aircraft carrier HMS Formidable and was twice bombed by the Kamakazi's. Unfortunately he passed away a couple of years ago, he would loved to have seen the your photo's.
