November 1943


Construction work begins at various points along the English coasts on the first sections of the Mulberry Harbours. These two artificial harbours will be made in huge sections from steel and concrete. After D-Day they will be towed over to Normandy and assembled off Gold and Omaha Beaches. The Mulberry Harbours will enable the Allies to land troops and equipment at a faster rate than is possible straight onto the beaches.
