One of the finishing touches was another sweeping structure – the ramp leading up the tank ramp of LCT 7074, lowered every day to let visitors in to see ship and tanks, and closed off at night. Essential to do that because the ship would be a bit of a beacon for the mischievous and destructive if it were not protected. Indeed a display on the canopy’s supporting arches along the starboard side of the ship has been modified, with images featuring Maritime Films UK’s specialist photographer David Botwinik removed – because some over-enterprising locals had been using the pictures’ frames to climb on board out of hours. A real pity as David’s pictures, as always, are superb. But not lost, because they can be found across several pages of the brochure for visitors to the ship and the museum.
