Mulberry Revealed

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I wonder if the Droggies are fine-tuning their kit for future survey work on the 'Richard Montgomery'?
     
  2. Kent Police will no doubt be involved. I think they are great.

    No mate, that'll be the Lysergic acid diethylamide kicking in.

  8. Actually, are the pointy ones not Mullberry sections but concrete barges, which are something quite different?
     
  9. The concrete barges were rectangular and had no 'pointy' ends.

    The rounded ones were likely the pontoons. One rests on the beach at Arromanche.

    are both harbours there or just the american one - the one they didn't think need fixing to the ground properly before the storm came along and wrecked it?

    there's a load of wartime vintage concrete barges amongst the hulks at purton with a couple sunk in the canal next to the river.

    I think they were cargo carriers rather than mulberry kit.
