Back To The Early Days Of Ro-Ro

One of our faithful readers shared this video link from the early days of the ro-ro ferries. The British Transport Film “Ferry Load” tells the story of the cross-channel vehicle ferry service from Tilbury to Antwerp on BARDIC FERRY.

Archive footage shows the beginning of transport ferries for civilian use in 1947 using tank landing craft EMPIRE CEDRIC from Preston to Larne, Northern Ireland.
