EMBARKATION HARD SITE Q

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of a Second World War embarkation hard at Lepe, known as site Q. It was built by the Admiralty in 1942 under the control of Portsmouth Command in preparation for D-Day. This was a 4-berth hard for landing craft transporting troops (an LST hard). It consisted of a concrete loading ramp equipped with steel framed mooring points called 'dolphins'. Embarkation hard sites were built with associated access roads, approach roads, transit areas and accommodation and ancillary buildings. The concrete hard with at least two 'dolphins' survives unused at the site. This was one of 22 embarkation hard sites under Portsmouth Command.
