Hi

I did my National Service on Tank Landing Craft from 1958 to 1960 with
76 Squadron RASC LCT based at Portsmouth.

Although lots of people have put photos etc of Landing Craft on various forums on the net, I thought it would be nice to set-up my own website about LCTs with the hope that people can send me their photos and stories to put on it.

I am new to web sites, so please be gentle with me and give me advice if you think I need it!!!!!

Good luck with your site Bob,I don't know much about them except I was glad to get off of them when I was in the army.used them from ship to shore in Nha Trang,Vietnam and also was landed by the LARCs in Danang. Never a shot fired at us thank goodness,only by a cameraman.

Hi Bob,

At Suez, we had no armaments and asked for them. We were given an LCT alongside us ( we were loaded with 10K ammo being; live and the rest being fused by the ordinance boys as it was sent ashore on Zed craft . LCT. I think the reason we got it was because it had a 'pop' gun in the bow. Am I right or is my memory playing games with me?
