Response to Chappie........

Bachaquero, Misoa and Tasajera they were built at Furness Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Company. Boxer, Bruiser and Thruster were built at Harland and Wolff, Belfast, Northern Ireland. The latter three launched late 1942 and commissioned in the RN during early 1943.
The later British Mk3 LST's with pennant numbers in the 3000 series were built in numerous places...Vickers-Armstrong, Harland and Wolff, Barclay Curle in Glasgow, Hawthorn-Hebburn etc etc.
