Diamond T tank transporters waiting to be loaded, 1944

Photograph by Major Wilfred Herbert James Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North West Europe, 1944.

The American built Diamond T tank transporter tractor was allocated to Commonwealth armies under the Lend Lease scheme. Transporters were used so that tanks did not have to travel long distances to a battlefield which could wear their tracks out before going into action.

From an album of 211 photographs compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters).
