HMS LST-413 was a United States Navy LST-1-class tank landing ship that was transferred to the Royal Navy during World War II. As with many of her class, the ship was never named. Instead, she was referred to by her hull designation.

Construction[edit]

LST-413 was laid down on 10 October 1942, under Maritime Commission (MARCOM) contract, MC hull 933, by the Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyard, Baltimore, Maryland; launched 10 November 1942; then transferred to the United Kingdom and commissioned on 5 January 1943.[3]

Service history[edit]

LST-413 saw no active service in the United States Navy. She was decommissioned and returned to United States Navy custody on 11 April 1946, and struck from the Naval Vessel Register on 10 June 1947. On 5 December 1947, LST-413 was sold to Bosey, Philippines.[3]
