Landing Craft Gun 2 (L)

The Landing Craft Gun (LCG) was another LCT conversion intended to give supporting fire to the landing. Apart from the Oerlikon armament of a normal LCT, each LCG(Medium) had two British Army 25 pounder gun-howitzers in armoured mountings, while LCG(L)3 and LCG(L)4 both had two 4.7-inch naval guns (12 cm).[22] Crewing was similar to the LCF. LCGs played a very important part in the Walcheren operations in October 1944.
