BHC 001058 jumble of LCT of the Shuttle Service on a Normandy beach

Ref: BHC 001058

A jumble of LCT of the Shuttle Service on a Normandy beach.
A large number of LCT, mostly Mark IVs, are lined up on a Normandy beach, on 7 June 1944 or later. Ahead to starboard of the cameracraft is LCT(4) 723 of 30 LCT Flotilla, 'N' LCT Squadron. LCT 723 was one of the spare craft (not given an LTIN) in Group 323(a), which was planned to land SP Artillery at JUNO NAN RED & WHITE Beaches at H+75 on D Day. Centre is LCT 719 of 33 LCT Flotilla, 'D' LCT Squadron which also carried SP Artillery, this time to JIG GREEN Beach in GOLD Area.

The cameracraft is not an LCT(4) like the most craft on this photo, but a Mark III, probably a Mark III* (Second Series) whose 4-digit pennant number started with the number '7'.

After carrying out their task on D Day these LCT were alloted to the Shuttle Service between the UK and the Normandy beaches, bringing in reinforcements and supplies during the Build-Up Phase of the invasion starting from daylight D+1.
