Not strictly armour or a vehicle but I thought I'd include the following:

58th LAA Regt RA using a captured 88mm against it's previous owners. I've accompanied the picture with a war diary insert. This is the unit my Grandfather was with during WW2. I might even be him using the 88mm, but I'm not able to id him.
