Some photographs I took of the historic last surviving D-Day landing craft being raised in Birkenhead Docks.

And a timelapse of her transportation. Its an amazing testament to her build quality that after all this time as a submerged wreck she was still strong enough to be lifted on just two slings. I'd forgotten about the floating dock being used to transport her.

Gald it wasn;t in 'real time' but extraordinary to watch. A fair amount of mathematics used for that operation !

One and the same, it must have been used in Liverpool and Birkenhead because of numerous reports from both locations.

Heck , Cools . It is indeed. Clubship Landfall and she was my regular Fri or /Sat night out. I remember we had to get to it via a rickety old bridge across the Canning Dock in the dark.
Many memories of that place, some good, some not so good . Ha ! Went on a blind date , wearing a short blonde wig (my hair was almost black and shoulder length) . Never having drunk whisky in my life, I spent the night on Canadian Club.. needless to say the wig dropped off at some point and the shock horror realisations , sent the blind date running. !!

Plenty of stories...of a mis-spent youth !

That is one superb restoration.
I Didn't even know it was in the docks. How long was it left to rot?
