At no time did we know what the three hideous ‘boats’ built entirely of reinforced concrete were to be used for or that they would become part of history as the Mulberry Harbour. We knew that a Second Front was to be opened up in Europe at some time in the future and reasoned that the secret work we were doing was, somehow or another, tied up with the invasion but no one had the faintest idea of what they could be used for in the imminent attack on Europe and of course no one told us the reason for them or their intended use.
