I would prefer each one to be discussed seperately.

Leofwine has put a separate post on here asking for help regarding a postcard of Muster Station No.3. Someone said that they thought it was inside Pembroke Gate, so the posts on here would seem to confirm it.

It may make sense if the two topics could be merged together.

I think that Muster Station No.2 is now the office for the paddlesteamer KINGSWEAR CASTLE.

There was a muster station inside Pembroke Gate too, quite a way in, almost as far as the Draughtsmans office (where MEDDOC is now).

Dockyard workers entering through the Main Gate would have to report to these Muster Stations to obtain their "ticket" entitling them to work for the day.
