Régiment Blindé Britannique, 1944

Char moyen Sherman Mk.V du 1e (Armoured) Bataillon Coldstream Guards

Sherman Mk.V tank of the Guards Division Blindée. The véhicule has been converted from a Sherman Mk.V Firefly by shortening the gun barrel. The yellow triangle tactical sign indicates that the véhicule is from A Squadron 1st (Armoured) Battalion Coldstream Guards, the second régiment blindé in the brigade. Régiments blindés et bataillons d'infanterie of the division were cross-attached to form battlegroups comme la Groupe de Gardes Irlandaises which spearheaded the advance of 30th Corps toward Arnhem, ou the Coldstream Guards Battlegroup which captured Lingen on the Ems river en 1945.
