The 350 Ton ship LCT 7074 is the only surviving Landing Craft (Tank) from D-Day, and one of only three in the world. LCTs were built crudely and quickly to carry tanks and put them ashore – 7074
took 10 to Normandy on 6 June 1944. This visionary project will secure a sustainable future for this exceptional survivor, completing the conservation that began with salvage in 2014, and showcasing her outside, alongside the new D-Day Museum – NMRN’s project partners.
This puts 7074 in the city’s heart, engaging a potential 4.5 million annual users of Southsea Common with the story of the ship and her people; it puts her D-Day story – which uniquely links sea and land – in context for Museum visitors. The project will create unique activity opportunities in Portsmouth and beyond, train apprentices and volunteers in practical conservation, and create a unique future venue.
An interpretation designer will be appointed to design the interpretation scheme. The interpretation designer will be expected to liaise with the other teams regarding the co-ordination of design elements.
