About

This exhibition tells the story of Landing Craft Tank 7074. LCT 7074 was constructed at Hawthorne Leslie‚Äôs shipyard in Hebburn in 1944 and used during D-Day and is the only one left in the UK. 

The D-Day landings were the largest seaborne invasion to ever take place. Over 7000, mostly British, ships and boats took part in the operation. Landing craft played a crucial role, carrying troops, tanks and supplies right onto the beaches.
