D-Day – Studland and Poole’s Involvement a talk by David Warhurst

February 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Studland was used for the training of the invasion force under “Operation Smash” in 1944, and Poole was the third largest embarkation point for “Operation Overlord”. David shows how Studland was involved in the pre D-Day training and how Poole was used in the build up for the D-Day landings.

David is a local historian who has written several books on Poole’s history, including one on the Royal Ordnance Factory, Holton Heath, where he worked as a scientist on cordite propellants.
