Harbour Goes to France, A

Synopsis
Archive copy in the Imperial War Museum.
The story of ‘Mulberry’, a prefabricated harbour larger than Dover Harbour, designed, tested and built in Britain, towed across the English Channel, and set down in the sea at Arromanches. This unprecedented engineering achievement ensured for the Allied Armies the constant supplies essential in the first stages of the liberation of Europe.
