Knocked out Mk VI Tiger tank at Belpasso, Sicily, 1943.

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

The Tiger was one of the most feared German tanks of the Second World War. Heavily armoured and fitted with a powerful 88mm gun, few Allied or Soviet tanks were a match for it in open combat. This example was knocked out at Belpasso in Catania during the Allied invasion of Sicily.
