    Raises the question (to me) was there ever a picture taken of a German tank knocked out by the (British) 24th Lancers?

    i.e. post battle pictures around St.Pierre, Tilly-sur-Seulles, Fontenay, Tessel Wood, Rauray etc. ?

    There might be some, somewhere, labelled as such?

    I know too for instance that there are a number of panzer tank wrecks in the photo reconnaissance pictures taken around then and after, so perhaps those too might fit into the same criteria.

    All the best,

    In Lt. Brameld's DSO citation there are a number of incidents mentioned. In one of them near St.Pierre, in Normandy, on 9th June 1944...

    When "there were enemy tanks out of range of his own guns he borrowed a Sherman* from a neighbouring Regiment and himself remained outside the tank carrying out observation and exposed to small arms fire until at least one and possibly two enemy tanks had been destroyed and all fire from that direction stopped.

    * /17pr is written nearby.
