These men tell their stories, some through the voices of relatives, and the story of one of the most tragic events of the Normandy Invasion in June The ship was designed and built for utility and durability but not for appearance.
They transported millions of troops along with millions of tons of vehicles, equipment and supplies in the Normandy invasion alone. The LSTs continued to transport supplies, equipment and replacement troops from England to France and then reversed the process until the end of the war. They were almost ten yards longer than a football field, and fifty feet in width.
Our small invasion craft, the LCVPs, were carried on davits on each side of the vessel. Manned by four sailors in each, the boats would be lowered to the water, where they would attempt to hover close by the mother ship [the LST].
Their job was to assist the soldiers scrambling down the cargo nets into the boats and then carry the men safely to their destination.
The main function of the LST was to carry tanks, trucks, jeeps, half-tracks, food, ammunition, hospitals, and troops onto the enemy beachhead once it was secured.
Day after day, the great unlovely ships would drive onto the beach. The great bow doors would swing out, and out would pour all the tools of war that would keep the invasion inland fed, armed, and moving ahead. Without the LSTs, the invasion of Europe and the conquest of the Japanese would have been impossible.
It was launched December 6,with commissioning on February 3, From there, it went to Halifax where it joined a large convoy of U. It was an orderly 16 day trip. The cargo of the ships varied greatly including food, mail, copper, lumber, gravel and general cargo.
The seas were heavy and when the convoy reached Plymouth, England it was necessary for welders to come on board to repair the ship. LST was part of the buildup of the Allies in anticipation of the planned invasion of German-occupied countries in Europe.
The ship was fitted out and crewed by the Navy as it waited on the English coast. On the first landing, the ship did not get in to the shore as far as it should. When the ramps opened and vehicles started debarking, many sunk due to the depth of the water. They were able to take Allied casualties on board to return to England.
The second trip to Normandy was more successful. The third and final trip was tragic. It was crewed with a Navy crew of as well as 40 Navy medics to care for the wounded that would be evacuated from the Normandy beaches after delivering men and equipment to the area.
LST made three successful round trips from England to Normandy and back. That conversation was recorded with the permission of the Navy medics. Navy medics recall the trip of LST from the U. We went from Bayone, New Jersey to Boston and stayed there for a day or two and picked up three or four other ships and then went on to Halifax, Nova Scotia where the convoy was getting ready to leave for England.
We were there for a few days and when we took off there must have been 50 to 70 ships or more in the convoy. The swells would come up and seemed like you could see forever and you couldn't see the end of the convoy. It took 28 days to get from Halifax to Plymouth, England. That was in the North Atlantic and it was a rough trip.
It was Easter Sunday when we saw the icebergs.
We were in an ice field all day long. We made four trips, or really three and a half trips. The first trips were quite routine as far as going into battle.LCVP Summary Report Student Support. Programmes.
