OXFORD CHURCHILL TANK 142 RAC TUNISIA 1943
We are pleased to introduce the World War II Churchill for our 1:148 enthusiasts. It appears as deployed in North Africa in 1943 in a typical camouflage livery with grey tracks, cables, suspension springs and machine guns. Note too, the tiny dark brown spade – an essential tool in the desert. The tank was part of two Army Tank Brigades despatched to Tunisia to support the First Army there. One of these brigades was the 142 (Suffolk) Regiment, Royal Armoured Corps and they arrived just as one of the major battles for Kasserine Pass was taking place. Throughout 1943 they were heavily involved against Rommel’s forces.
