Landing Craft Assault (LCA) was a Landing craft  used extensively in World War II. Its primary purpose was to ferry troops from transport ships to attack enemy-held shores. The craft derived from a prototype designed  by John I. Thornycroft Ltd . of Woolston, HampshireUK  During the war it was manufactured throughout the United Kingdom in places as various as small boatyards and furniture manufacturers.

Typically constructed of hardwood planking and selectively clad with armour plate, this shallow-draft barge -like boat with a crew of four could ferry an infantry plantoon of 31, with space to spare for five additional specialist troops, to shore at 7 Knots (13 km/h). Men generally entered the boat by walking over a gangplank from the boat deck of a troop transport as the LCA hung from its davits. When loaded, the LCA was lowered into the water. Soldiers exited by the boat's bow ramp.
