    It's the broken off armoured shroud that goes around the barrel on the gun mantlet Kieron.
    More normally seen like this:

    Idly wondering - Is it the same Tiger as Kieron's shot?
    The Turret numbers seem different, Kieron's being 321 & the other looking like 101, but the number's so Indistinct on the second (left hand) view I can't be sure?

    Looks like Kieron's photo is a mix of British and Americans- probably Noryh Africa - whereas the other is American only ?
    Cheers

    I was going to suggest different locations as some in the top shot are wearing shorts.

    Cheers

    Same Tiger in the photos. Being on the road it seems everyone in Tunisia got photographed on it!
