I've recently been looking in to my Grandfather's service record, who served as a signaller aboard LCT 864 in the British Navy from 1943 until the end of the war. He died ten years before I was born without leaving any account of his time during the war, so I haven't really had an awful lot to go on, besides general family knowledge that he had been at D-Day. I've been trying to dig around a bit, but have found it difficult to come across particular information about a specific LCT - I've not even been able to work out which flotilla it would have been a part of during Operation Neptune, as I was hoping to work out which beach he was likely to have landed on etc. Beyond D-Day, it also states in his records that my Grandfather was Mentioned in Despatches on the 6th February 1945 - it is now unlikely I'll ever know precisely what action merited that, but I've been trying to work out a general idea of where he might have been at the time. The date makes me think it'd be something to do with the push through the low countries, but I can't be sure. As such, my research has hit a bit of a dead-end: I was wondering if anyone might have access to any information that would help me along, or knew of any sources (that I'm clearly missing!) that I could use to try and place LCT 864 both regarding Operation Neptune itself and then on through to the conclusion of the war. Many thanks in advance for any help or guidance you might be able to offer.
