LCI (L).99 is not listed as taking part in the D-Day landings [source:  The D-Day Ships by John Winser ] but was evidently involved in the follow-up support.

EBC convoys were the supply convoys from Barry, South Wales, to Seine Bay for the landing beaches.

Thanks Philonauticus, very much appreciated.
Do you know where I can find out if she made it to any of the Normandy landings? I know she was torpedoed in EBC-72 off North Cornwall.
I know from the routing Barry- Falmouth she was possibly supporting US invasion forces and possibly onto Omaha and or Utah beaches.
Thanks again.
Alex

Hi Tony,
I have extract from ADM210/8 Green List for 11.07.1944 relating to 0 LCI (L) Flotillas ( including the Pennant Numbers of the various LCI attached to their respective Flotillas ) that were operational at that time as part of the "Overlord " Forces which were providing shuttle services between their relevant bases and Normandy. If this is of interest to you let me know and I'll send this over. The Flotilla that I was particularly interested in was 263rd as this was the one that my late father was posted to. At the time duties were administered by HMS Porcupine and the following craft operated out of Newhaven - LCI's 126; 164;165; 169; 171; 179; 181; 300; 377; 378; 379 and 380.

Hi Paul
I hope you don't mind me getting in touch with you. Does your green list contain any information on HMS LCI(L)-99? My uncle was aboard when she was sunk. I believe she was involved in Sicily, I have an Italy Star Medal here at home. However I am trying to find out anything I can about 99 and what she was doing before being sunk.

Regards
Alex Shields

Is there any way that I can find my Fathers service number. I know he served during WWII, his age etc but everything I try to do they ask for his service number which I don't have. He passed away in 1984 and apart from myself and my Siblings there is no one else that can give me information.

Good morning, I'm very keen to obtain a copy of ship plans for the steam tug "Wyola"(Reg. No. 131636) built in South Shields UK in 1912 by JT Eltringham & Co.(No.288) for the Swan River Shipping Co. in Western Australia.

The tug served the port of Fremantle in Western Australia for it's entire life of 58 years, apart from service in the Mediterranean during WW1, from 1918-1920, when it was requisitioned for service as a rescue/ salvage tug by the Admiralty.

I have heard that two original plans existed 2 or 3 years ago,(one midships and one other) with some reference to the Admiralty? Can you help me with this please, or suggest someone who might be able to help?

Do you have any information at all, as well as, or apart from ship plans, relating to the Wyola?

I've tried Royal Museum Greenwich, Lloyd's Register Foundation, Tyne and Wear Museum and Archives, and National Museum of the Royal Navy and Admiralty Library(both closed until spring 2020) to name a few, but no luck so far!

Many thanks, I look forward to hearing from you,

Even I have been setting up the Facebook profile and pages for my new website because I want to promote it and get regular traffic from Facebook on it. Well, someone has suggested using the paid facebook ad management technique as well. Do you think it will be beneficial for my extremely new website?

HI

I am doing some research for National Trust Somerset countryside team. We have a big gap in our knowledge around the department of Misc weapons development activities in the area. We are very keen to view any pictures and stories of experiments that took place locally especially on Brean Down and the beaches. The National records are not that helpful, the book 'Whizzers and dodgers' mentions a few places and we are wondering if anyone can help ?

thanks in anticipation
