    It's the 513 PIR riding on Churchills of 6th Guards Armoured Brigade. Either the 2/513 with the Scots Guards, or the 3/513 with the Coldstreams. Only three regiments still had Churchill gun tanks by this stage.

    You know, it is amazing how much info is out there. For years I read books about the Battle of Midway that had pictures and the captions could get no more specific than, "Unidentified pilot struggles to get out of the cockpit as his aircraft sinks beside a U.S. ship." Then all of a sudden I got a book where the captions were more like,
    "15:59, June 4th, 1942 (Samoan Time Zone). Lt. Denny Johns of VF-3 struggles to get out of his F4F-4 fighter, BuOrd number 5170, as it sinks beside USS Monaghan, DD-354, of Desron 1. The plane was forced down after battle damage over IJN Kaga, at approximately 14:59,15. Lt. Johns was plucked out of the water by the Monaghan's captain's gig and spent the night aboard the Monaghan before being transferred to the USS Enterprise since his ship, USS Yorktown, was by then being assayed for salvage and recovery after two attacks by "Vals" from IJN Hiryu. Yorktown, was later sunk by torpedoes fired by Lieutenant Commander Yahachi Tanabe from IJN submarine I-68." Johns now works as a jeweler in Lansing, MI, where he has a wife, three girls, and a beagle named Monaghan. " *

    * That's a fictional composite but the plane's serial number matches the plane type, loss description, and action!
    "It is said, 'Go not to the elves for counsel for they will say both no and yes.' "

    Looks like various lengths of M4 Sherman track - both T54E1 and T62 - being used as add-on armor. Probably scrounged from a vehicle collection point.
