Landing craft tank LCT 7074
Your visit to The D-Day Story now starts with LCT 7074. This is the last surviving Landing Craft Tank (LCT) from D-Day, and it played a vital role in transporting men and supplies across the English Channel.
After it was retired, LCT 7074 was turned into a nightclub but fell into disrepair and sank in Birkenhead docks. Now, following a multi-million pound restoration project by our partner, the National Museum of the Royal Navy – with backing from the National Lottery Heritage Fund – LCT 7074 has been restored to its former glory.
It now stands proudly outside The D-Day Story, to further tell the stories of those involved in D-Day, and to keep alive their heroic acts.
