Churchill AVRE Tank - One Charlie

A British Churchill AVRE tank which stands as a glorious memorial of the landing operations on 6 June 1944. It was unable to bridge a deep culvert on D-Day one hundred yards south of the site and the members of its crew were obliged to escape under enemy fire with very heavy casualties.
