The Royal Navy supply bases in Gosport were all vital for supplying the Allied invasion fleet with the many necessities required by such a huge number of personnel and ships. The Royal Navy Armament Depot at Priddy’s Hard supplied ammunition to allied ships involved Operation Overlord. 2,500 women worked at the site during the Second World War, filling jobs vacated by men on active service.
