I think he was invalided pout after an injury in Normandy. He wrote to labopur MP Bob Stke about the poor quality of British Tank design.

“For four years now I have been watching shells fired from mine, and other tanks, bouncing off the front of German panzers. I mean actually watching and actually bouncing; and that after we have wriggled, and crept, and rushed our tanks to within effective range for our weapons. This has meant always; for at least 1000 yards, we had been within the enemy’s effective range before we could fire a shot(at him) that had any hope of success.”

Churchill accused of lying to the house about the qualioty of tanks.
