    British Invasion Craft which played so successful a part in the assault on Sicily on July 10th 1943, represented many months work in the shipbuilding yards.

    (1) Boys heating the rivets.
    (2) The riveters can be seen driving the rivets home.
    (3) A great side-plate being moved into position for riveting.
    (4) A Finished invasion barge being transported seawards by means of a lorry.
    (5) The dinner-hour is welcomed after a hard morning's work well done. The smiles became even broader when these Home Front workers learned of the great results of their arduous labours.
