D Day supplies

For D Day many thousands of telegraph poles and miles of wire were taken to France in anticipation of the retreating Germans having destroyed their communications.

This abandoned pole near what was COD Old Dalby may have been in use then. 
This was but the tip of the iceberg. In all some 300 million items were packed in Ordnance depots around the country by RAOC men and women plus volunteers from many walks of life including school children.
