Southwick House, Portsmouth

Southwick House is a 19th-century manor house and home to the Defence School of Policing and Guarding and other related military police capabilities.

It was important during the Second World war as it housed overnight pupils of the Royal Navy School of Navigation, HMS Dryad, which was based in Portsmouth Naval Dockyard. In 1944, it became the headquarters of the main allied commanders, the large wall maps that were used on D-Day are still in place in the house in the main map room.
