A Churchill tank of 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry, 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.

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.
