Port Winston was a temporary Mulberry Harbour in Normandy created just 3 days after D-Day. In the following 10 months, it was used to land over 2.5 million men, 500,000 vehicles, and 4 million tonnes of supplies providing much needed reinforcements in France.

In his talk Chris Howlett (Head of the UKHO Seabed Data Centre) will describe the reasons for, the design and use of the Mulberry harbour (located off Arromanches in Normandy) as well as covering a recent archaeological survey to investigate what remains. The modern survey used both multibeam sonar and a terrestrial laser scanner (both supplied by NetSurvey Ltd) to record what exists above and below the water.

The bar will be open from 1830 and a buffet will be provided prior to the presentation at 1900

Members and non-members welcome

There is a charge of £5 for admission
