Visit our new section, dedicated to World War II FCBs
After a further year of research, my aim is to provide accurate history and to dispel the urban myths that surround these feats of British wartime concrete engineering !
Just to put the record straight, right from the start, the closest the 16 Petrol Barges at Rainham Marshes got to France, was when someone threw a baguette at one in 1998.
I'll also dispel the myth that the World War II Ferro-Concrete Barges has anything whatsoever to do with the Mulberry Harbours.
The only thing that FCBs and Mulberry have in common are that they are made of concrete, they float and they were built in World War II.
