George Corner. Site of the construction of a train ferry link span to the berth alongside the Cargo Stage to the east (right) This construction, started in 1943 was completed in early 1944. It was never used to support the invasion of Europe and was remove at the cessation of hostilities. It would clearly have been useful if the various train ferry berths further up Channel had been damaged by enemy action.

Railway line runs through the street to Weymouth harbour. This looks like pannier tank loco.

Did you know that Weymouth Station was one of 200 'stopping stations' where wounded and sick men and women were received for onward transfer to local hospital by car and ambulance/ Where might they have been taken?

Almost anywhere, depending on the treatment required and to some extent their nationality. For example,near where I live there is a hospital built by the Americans in 1943,to cope with the expected heavy casualties following D-Day. No doubt there were many others in various locations.
