British film crew visits LST 325

Posted: Updated:

A British film crew has boarded LST 325.   

The Brits are working on a documentary about Operation Torch. In World War II, that was the invasion of French North Africa in November 1942, the first time U.S. and British forces jointly planned an invasion together.

There will be some local reenactors and a World War II veteran from that operation will be there as well.

So far, there's no word when that documentary will be available for the U.S. audience.

Evansville had a major inland shipyard during the war years, building 167 LSTs.
