Landing Craft Assault (LCA) [Lego MOC]

LCA 888 was the lead craft in the assault to destroy the German cliff top guns at Pointe-du-Hoc. It carried the raid's leader, Lieutenant Colonel James Earl Rudder, and was one of 10 LCAs fitted with rope launchers to help the Rangers scale the cliffs quickly. The BM on the side identifies its parent ship, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Ferry "Ben My Chree". The "Ben" had been converted into a Landing Craft Infantry vessel, carrying 6 LCAs and acted as the command ship for the Pointe Du Hoc assault.
