D-2 Marshalling Area D2   was the area aroundPoole  Harbour. We have a   series of maps showing many of the marshalling areas. Area D2 seems unusual,   in that most areas are full of camps where the troops were waiting before   going toNormandy.   In Area D2 there is only one camp, north of Lytchett Minster and apparently   within/adjacent to the grounds of South Lytchett Manor. Administratively,   this camp seems to have been considered as an off-shoot of several camps just   north of Weymouth/Portland,Dorset(known as   Area D1).**** NB Article 965 935
