Response to Question ...

Bachaquero built 1937, Misoa built 1937 and Tasajera built 1938 stood alone....they were all built by Furness Shipbuilding and North Eastern Marine Engineering....they were what they were and never carried a pennant number.Later named British LST of the same class were Boxer, Bruiser and Thruster....ALL of whom took part in the landings in the Med during 1943-1944...none saw service in Normandy.
