    Hi, Ian.
    There's a chap called Stephen Fisher with the username of 'Spitfires of the sea' that posts on Twitter & WW2talk.
    He's currently an archaeologist on the restoration of LCT 7074 in readiness for her installation at Pompey's DDay museum.
    If anyone knows, he might be the chap to ask. Very good on LCTs.

    She was laid down and launched in 1943, but no dates. On D-Day, she was part of the 38th LCT Flotilla, 'E' LCT Squadron as part of Assault Group S3 on SWORD. I have no record of her cause of loss.
