Does the Army still run LST's landing craft at all, and if so, they still operate out of Marchwood in Southampton Waters? It is a long time ago when I was stationed in Winchester, Hants and I often heard that the RCT's Marchwood base was quite large, and that they ahd quite a few vessels there.

The Royal Fleet Auxiliary now operate 3 Bay Class 'Landing Ship Dock' (LSD) which replaced the 'Landing Ship Logistic' (LSL)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bay-class_landing_ship

Marchwood Military Port (MMP) or Marchwood Sea Mounting Centre (SMC) is still the base of 17 Port & Maritime Regiment Royal Logistic Corps.

17 Port & Maritime lost their RCL's in March this year. There is talk of the site at Marchwood being sold, but then again, they have been saying that for at least 5 years to my knowledge.

There was an item on our local BBC News a few month ago, looks like the sale could be on the cards.

I did read somewhere that they want to build a container port on most of the site but retain an area for a smaller military dock.
