    Flying the White Ensign of the Royal Navy, landing craft of manifold types made possible victorious advances from the sea; the climax of their usefulness was apparent when the Allies descended in full force upon the mainland of Western Europe. On their bows was lettering to identify them: LSI (left background) are anchored landing ships from which assault craft are being lowered; LCF, major landing craft armed with A.A. guns; LCI, an infantry landing craft; LST, tank-landing ship; LCS, support craft; LCT, landing craft that carried tanks, guns and heavy equipment; LCA, landing assault craft; lower right an amphibious duck.
