IWM caption: Churchill tank crews HQ Troop, 51st Royal Tank Regiment, 25th Tank Brigade, share out rations near their camouflaged vehicles before going into action in support of 1st Canadian Division, Italy.
I could think of no better way to kickstart this thread than with the grossly underrated Churchill tank. 15 men in the photo likely indicates the entire platoon is in the photo, with one vehicle out of the frame. It looks like the camouflage netting was peeled back to produce a better photo
LVT-2 "Water Buffalo" and LVT-1 "Alligator" on the seawall on Betio Island Tarawa Atoll November 1943. The track in the rear, LVT-1 #49 "My Deloris" was the first amtrack ashore at Tarawa. She was returned to the US for a war bond tour and afterwards was on display at Camp Pendleton. She also appears in the foreground of the Tarawa landing scene in the movie "Sands of Iwo Jima".
Another view of Marines inspecting "My Deloris" #49 after the end of fighting on Tarawa.
