Hi all, Bryan Perrett's "Allied Tank Destroyers" (Osprey) describes the following incident in Italy: "During this same period an engagement took place when sharp eyes in one of 314 Battery’s Archers detected a Tiger and the 17-pounder lashed back. The round missed narrowly, but the crack of heavy, high-velocity shot is instantly recognizable, and the German tank commander at once swung his vehicle out of sight behind a building. Unfortunately for him the Tiger was spotted by a Lysander Air OP, which signalled its whereabouts. The Archer fired again and the 17 pounder shot slammed straight through the building and the tank’s thin side armour as well. It was with considerable pleasure that the gunners inspected the wreck some days later." I haven't been able to corroborate this yet. I have the WD's of 105 AT Regiment and didn't find anything. 314 Battery first received Archers in October 1944, but didn't see action in them over the winter. At the end of February 105 AT Regiment's batteries were split up and 314 Battery came under the command of 13 AT Regiment. I have that WD as well, but also, still no mention. I would have thought that taking out a Tiger might be worth a note. There are also some details of the story which I'm unsure of. First of all, I don't know how Lysander Air OPs were used, but presumably they communicated with the CRA of the division? If so it seems like it would have taken a number of radio "hops" to communicate the information to the Archer. Did Lysanders ever "net" their radios to more specific unit bands? Secondly, surely the Tiger's side armour wasn't exactly thin - I wonder if there's any chance this was a Panther instead of a Tiger. But, on the other hand - Allied Tank Destroyers has a photo of 314 Battery with its Archers from after the hostilities, so he must have had some additional source of information - possibly a veteran of the unit? I just wish I knew what that source was.
