British M10 Gun Motor Carriage at Goch (Cleves)
Here we see the rear end of an M10 Gun Motor Carriage (Tank Destroyer) in British service. The vehicle is watching a German roadblock in Goch, near Cleves, just inside Germany. This is a late-production M10, identifiable by the 'duck-bill' counterweight at the rear of the turret. The gun isn't visible, so it isn't possible to tell if this is a standard M10 (Wolverine in British service), or one that had been converted to carry the 17pdr anti-tank gun (the Achilles). The original wartime caption calls it a 'Firefly', which suggests that this might be an Achilles, as the Sherman Firefly carried the same 17pdr gun.
