Just one question, why were a sniper team so close to terry? I would assume that their primary effectiveness, is negated by being up close.
This is in no way a dig at them, just a very curious ex squaddie.
I wondered the same thing--especially curious as to why one had a 12 bore shotgun too.
I was anti tank and carried a can opener as back up!!
Can opener? BLUIDDY CAN OPENER? Looxury! We 'ad to shove tyre iron t'rough t' drive wheel as it went past blah blah...
A drive wheel? All we had were our boots. (your turn! )
Boots? Looxury! We used t' shove passing Marine oop exhaust pipe, they didn't 'alf squeal, like...
Fair one. Still trying to think of a better one.
Apparently the UK Home Guard were actually supposed to use tyre irons against Panzers like that, and the WW2 'Brisbane Line' tank traps are, supposedly, still in place (they were lengths of hardwood dug into the ground at an angle). I doubt that either method would have worked too well- desperate times, desperate measures...
