Any suggestions as to what type of floating craft these were?


Recommended Posts

I have decided they are not DUKWs, even cut down ones, but I wonder if anyone on here can suggest a forum on where to find answers?  My first thought was they were stripped DUKW hulls but finding the other photos suggests otherwise.  I added the one with the truck in the top corner to indicate size.  Photos dated 1948.

As David said, bridge pontoon sections.  About the right size to fill the back of a 3-tonner with maybe a bit of the sharp end sticking out.

I've seen very similar in Aluminium, but with the age of your photo these may be steel, but still relatively light.
