Nothing more is needed to commemorate the engineers who built the artificial harbours. Yes 2 not one... but the other one was destroyed by a heavy storm after a few days. Like other British war monument kept in impeccable state.

This memorial uses pieces of equipment to honor those engineers that gave there all to make the Normandy Landing successful. The memorial will take only minutes to see, but will leave you thinking about their sacrifice.
