I wasn't sure where to post this, but here is a nicely restored GPW located on the LST 393 in Muskegon, Michigan. For anyone interested, it is a nice museum ship and well worth a visit.

Look like it needs to be "liberated" and set free. :D

Nice Jeep. Didn't realise there was another surviving LST. Are there any more apart from this and 325?

Hi Toby,
Apparently just 393 and 325, although I would bet there still may be a few in Eaurope somewhere. I believe that 325 is either on or just got back from a trip to Peoria, Illinois and back to Evansville.

I know that the LST at Pounds shipbreakers in Portsmouth has just been scrapped, having lain there for some years. I think it is still visible on Google Earth. From memory it was completed post-war.

Thanks for posting that link. Was that the same "Pounds" scrap yard that used to have all sorts of Military vehicles? Come to think of it, didn't they also have a U-boat as well?
