Concrete Landing Craft

Recommended Posts

The Friends of the Assault Training Center have been clearing undergrowth from the "dummy" LCT`s in advance of the Devon D Day show here on June 6th, when we hope to re-create some photos taken at the time. Built in late 1943 by the American Troops training here in Devon there are three surviving LCT`s and some LCP`s, they were first uncovered around 15 years ago but have since become overgrown. One has an extension piece at the rear added by 146th Engineers, C Co, 1st Platoon when the longer MkVI boats were introduced. The sides were constructed scaffold tube type uprights with latrine screens or corrugated tin.
