1 Nov 1944
Took part in Operation Infatuate II (the landing at Westkapelle, Netherlands) as Loading Table Index Number (LTIN) 7 carrying assault team Damson (3 Sherman Crabs and 2 Churchill AVREs) and commandos. Suffered damage from fire from shore battery: holes in the hull, compass and bow ramp out of action, and electricity mostly out.
