This was one of several troop camps in London. Troops camped in Marshalling Area T (in the London region) in mid-1944 were part of the follow-up forces that landed on the British beaches in Normandy in the days after D-Day. Among the units camped in London before D-Day were troops from the 51st (Highland) Division, who began landing in Normandy on D+1 (7 June 1944). Units in Marshalling Area T embarked through ports in the Thames Estuary, such as Tilbury.
