    Hi Everyone
    I am doing my Family history and my father was a Royal Marine in the British Royal Navy.
    He was at Normandy serving on Landing Craft Flak.
    I am looking for a photo of one, would be great if it was No 19.

    Found these two for you, a LCF (mark 3) and a LCF (mark 4)

    And:

    Landing Craft Flak
    The Landing Craft Flak (LCF) was a conversion of the LCT intended to give anti-aircraft support to the landing. They were first used in the Dieppe Raid early in 1942. The ramp was welded shut, and a deck built on top of the Tank deck. They were equipped with several light anti-aircraft guns—a typical fitting was eight 20 mm Oerlikons and four QF 2 pdr "pom-poms" and had a crew of 60. Royal Navy examples had mixed crews, with the operation of the craft being the responsibility of RN crew and the manning of the guns being done by Royal Marines. They carried two naval officers and two marine officers.
