Summary: A captioned film record of a three day trial with a (large) Infantry Landing Craft - LCI(L).
Description: 1st day - The disembarkation and re-embarkation of 250 troops on a 1-in-75 beach "untactically". The LCI approaches the beach, the ramps are lowered, and the men disembark. During the re-embarkation attention is drawn to the bunching caused by the steep companion way to the men's quarters.
2nd day - The exercise is repeated "Tactically" on a steep beach with 2 Companies of Royal Marines under a naval bombardment, using an assembly area during re-embarkation to avoid bunching.
3rd day - A fast disembarkation and embarkation on a 1-in-190 beach with the now experienced troops.
