Wreck of a Mk VI Tiger tank at Belpasso, 1943

Photograph by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, Sicily, 1943.

The Tiger was one of the most feared German tanks of the Second World War. Heavily armoured and fitted with a powerful 88 mm gun, few Allied or Soviet tanks were a match for it in open combat. This example was probably scuttled by its crew in Belpasso in Catania during the Allied invasion of Sicily./p>

From an album containing 246 photographs compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters).
