Interesting site first thing in the morning

An unusual site when you open the curtains first thing in the morning. U534 was on the same dock where I was dismantling Seacombe ferry landing stage. The stern tube on the starboard side was open to the sea when she was lifted from the sea bed which led to speculation she had been carrying Nazi loot when she was sunk. I looked around her several times but never found anything. My camp is set up to the left.

Lct 7074 The last D Day tank landing craft

Just having a rummage in the attic and found some pictures of a maritime demolition job in Liverpool England. The work involved the dismantling of the former Seacombe ferry landing stage. As a result of being in the area Lord Goodhart asked me to price up some work which involved converting the Tank landing craft back to D Day spec. She had been converted into a floating night club the "landfall".
