The regiment moving on transporters back to the Caen sector, 1944.

Photograph from an album compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3/4 County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North West Europe.

A convoy of tank transporters carries Sherman tanks of 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry along a road in Normandy. Tank transporters had two roles. They could be used as tank carriers for moving vehicles long distances in order to avoid wear and tear to tracks and engines prior to battle deployment, or as recovery transporters for damaged vehicles.
