Recently while searching for something else I dug out my old copy of "From Trombay to Changi... The Story of Arakan Coastal Forces". In there was an extract from the Operation Zipper Assault Plan in relation to Peggy Force, responsible for landing 2 batt. of the 51st Indian Inf Bde. What caught my eye was the reference to the use of lend lease Landing Vehicle Tracked. 55 plus a recovery version were to be launched from LSTs to land the troops. Does anyone know what units these might have come from? Until now the only unit I've been aware of with LVTs was the 34 Royal Marine Amphibian Support Regt which had gun rocket and flame thrower versions.
