Our Boarding School was outside Weymouth in Dorchester.This and Portland Harbour were our stamping grounds on our Sundays .The monumental movement of Men and Equipment is mind boggling to bring it all from the Soth Coast of England.A huge Pontoon belonging to the "Mulberry Harbour" is still to be seen in Portland Harbour.
