What is the LCT 7074?

The LCT 7074 is the only known surviving Landing Craft Tank in the U.K. that participated in D-Day. Built to carry tanks directly onto the beaches of Normandy, these unique machines played a crucial role in the success of Operation Overlord. After years of service and subsequent decay, the ship was meticulously restored to its former glory and a vital piece of WWII history was thus preserved.

Automatically translated subtitles are available through the Settings menu.

What to Expect?

Join a two-hour tour of historic sights, exceptional museums, and important locations connected to the Normandy Landings and Operation Overlord.

Richard and David will lead you through the evening and tell the story of D-Day 1944 as we commemorate the 80th anniversary of this critical point in European history.

Please note that the stream will only be available in English.
