Remains of the Mulberry Harbour - Beetle Pontoon

Remains of the Mulberry Harbour - Beetle Pontoon

Beetles were pontoons that supported the "Whale" piers. They were moored in position using wires attached to "Kite" anchors which were also designed by Allan Beckett. These anchors had such high holding power that very few could be recovered at the end of the War; the only known surviving one is displayed in a private museum at Vierville-sur-Mer.
