Photograph by Major Wilfred Herbert James Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North West Europe, 1944.
The model shown here is probably a Mark VII Churchill which was armed with a 75mm gun. The tank weighed 39 tons, had a top speed of 17 miles (27 kilometres) per hour, and had a range of 90 miles. Some Churchills were adapted to mount flame throwers. The Churchill chassis could also be fitted with equipment for mine sweeping, bridge laying and other specialised tasks.
