1951 Force Mulberry by Alfred Stanford Commander USNR
1951 Force Mulberry by Alfred Stanford Commander USNR A Mulberry harbour was a British type of temporary harbour developed in World War II to offload cargo on the beaches during the Allied invasion of Normandy. The Dieppe Raid of 1942 had shown that the Allies could not rely on being able to penetrate the Atlantic Wall to capture a port on the north French coast. Thus, the Mulberries were created to provide the port facilities necessary to offload the thousands of men and vehicles, and tons of supplies necessary to sustain Operation Overlord and the Battle of Normandy. The harbours were made up of all the elements one would expect of any harbour: breakwater, piers, roadways etc.
This was part of the extensive library of Robert Steward who ran the Aeronautical Museum at the Oshawa Airport. His family auctioned off his entire museum assets after his death.
