Hi Rudolf, thanks for the info, but the picture of the tower on navsource is NOT LCI(H)275. someone put that on without looking too hard, I think its LMS 275 or something like that. LCI(H) had a square tower. I bought the book with that pic in it too, just to make absolutely sure.

incidently, I seem to remeber a story in the bbc archives "peoples war" about group 210, sent out in advance of D Day to land some tanks on gold beach, the weather turned them back though. ML303, LCH 275, and a few other vessels were in the group. LCH275 was probably chosen because she was one of only a handful of LCI'S fitted with the then new Decca Radar, a big, round glass thing stuck on top of the Gantry which made it stand out from a normal LCI's

How many LCI(H)-type crafts had been commissioned?
Is there a source?

I have found 7 Royal & 1 US Navy.


Hi Griff, thank you!
I have modified my reply.

RootsChat is going to be a Naval Source!

Rudolf, that made me laugh. I was a little annoyed when I first saw the pic because I knew it was wrong but we all make mistakes when we rush things. I E-Mailed navsource, so hopefully it will be removed.  I've been googling 275 for years on and off and come to realise its only the next generation,us, that will add anything, if at all. I'm just glad my mum saw fit to give me a couple of things rather than bin them, and this is a great place to share things.

you're welcome David, and the pic on navsource is being moved to the correct page so as not to confuse anyone,

Hi David, just in case you're still looking into HM LCI(H)275, I have a photo of the ship and a couple of the crew, a few names etc Get in touch if you want what little info I have.

My father served on LCH275, during its time off the Normandy beaches, I still have his combined ops badge somewhere! He was Richard (dick) Reynolds otherwise know as 'Snowy' and he was a signalman. Love to see those images if there's any chance at all!

Kind regards

John

Hi John

No problem at all, they were kindly supplied to me by Griff as referred to earlier in this thread, I'm sure he won't mind me passing them on to you.

Do you want to give me your email address and I'll send them on to you?

Cheers

David
