OK, had ik niet in de gaten, hier een korte versie van de tekst en wat foto's

Lex

"A few years ago, I had noticed an unusual feature beside the road leading to Achnacarry House. This turned out to be a dry landing craft LCA, originally used for training troop movements on and off craft before embarking on the real thing.



It appeared in a sorry state, largely overgrown and not very noticeable though it was only a very short distance beside the main road. Our living history group is always keen to see new life in wartime equipment and so we embarked upon Operation LCA in order to revive what may be the only remaining piece of training equipment remaining at Achnacarry CBTC.





Heading towards Achnacarry, the structure is located beside the road (right hand side) approximately 500ft before the gates on the left turn-off that lead to the House and Museum.

We first secured permission from Cameron of Lochiel to carry out restoration work and three members of the Commando D Living History Group (Mike, Stephen and myself) and one 4 Para recruit arrived on Saturday 21st May to start work.



The craft structure is now very noticeable from the roadside and we can only imagine that surprised locals will now wonder "Who built that there?!"

Two long rows of now broken brick bases on the main deck area were originally built to simulate long benches for seating troops (12 to each bench) A third bench of twelve would also have been on board. With no evidence of this remaining or visible we can assume this may have been mobile such as a PT bench.

The concrete base is mounted on a brick foundation and was originally built up with wooden walls, top sections and lowering ramp to simulate the confines of the real thing. We discovered evidence of the original grey paint used for the outer walls, which appeared to have been painted after construction. It is also possible that a water filled ditch was situated directly in front of the exit ramp along with the rocks to simulate a more realistic beach landing.

The next stages for this project are to have a short walkway constructed from the road to the craft and the CVA have generously offered to fund a descriptive plaque that should detail the original function and history of this rare piece of Commando history.

Plan is to have all in place by November 2011

Our group is indebted to Cameron of Lochiel for allowing us to work on this historic monument, Brian at the Alexandra in Fort William, DF Wishart & Co of Edinburgh for sponsoring tools for the job and of course the CVA for supporting our efforts and furthering commemoration of the Achnacarry LCA. Thankyou All!



LCA, access path and installed plaque complete.

This can now be seen beside the road, a short distance before the gates to Achnacarry House. The plaque was officially unveiled over Remembrance weekend by Donald Cameron of Lochiel. We were also treated to a lively description of the original training procedures for embarking and disembarking by Stan Scott, 3 Cdo.



There was a great turnout for the unveiling including many WW2 Cdo veterans and serving Army Commandos. To hear Stan Scott say "Looking at that brings all the memories flooding back.." made the whole project ultimately worthwhile.



Well done lads, We will Remember Them."

Mooi initiatief, en Moos, best de moeite waard om van dit forum lid te worden, hoop interessante topic's, maar ben het met je eens, er zijn nu zoveel forums dat het bijna niet meer te volgen is!

Zat gisteren nog in het vooroorlogse gedeelte van het HMVF forum te kijken, wat daar allemaal gerestaureerd wordt!!!!

Cheers,

Lex

Hi Lex,

Een mooi stukje geschiedenis wat perfect aansluit bij een toevallig gevonden foto op het web.
wat het HMVF betreft, ik heb daar een tijd terug eens helemaal door alle posts heen geakkerd over de restauratie van een WO1 Dennis truck.
Ongelooflijk wat die gasten kunnen.

Ook op de terreinen van het voormalige US Army Assault Training Center in Woolacombe, Devon vind je nog dergelijke restanten terug...
