On second thoughts, I don't think the landing craft was ever officially part of the Historic Warships collection. As far as I remember, there was some plan to restore it with the aim of adding it to the collection. Instead, it was left to rot and sink.
That's how we treated the only surviving British vessel of its type that took part in the D-Day landings.
Meanwhile, less than a mile away at Woodside, a fortune was spent on restoring a German submarine and sticking it slap bang on the waterfront.
So much for our History
