We still have a mulberry here in Portland harbour.
If you are ever in Dorset do come over and see it by the side of the Weymouth D day museum

That looks like a great little museum. Lots of "hands on" for kids instead of glass cases. What you have there are two very intact Phoenix caissons, parts of a massive Mulberry Harbour.

It is said that the one surviving Mulberry, after the great storm, was a big help until Cherbourg etc could be opened but that, in practice, more was unloaded directly off the beaches off LSTs, DUKWs, LCs etc. to everyone's surprise.
