The LCA was introduced in 1940 as the standard means of landing a platoon of infantry. With the demands already placed on shipyards, production was turned over to numerous furniture and piano manufacturers which had the relevant skills and which were not already engaged in war production. They took part in numerous raids and all of the major landings – Dieppe, North Africa, Salerno, Anzio, Normandy and Walcheren.
