Churchills in the battel for Steamroller Farm 1943

Post by keith A » 04 May 2020 14:50

From the Falmes of War website "a platoon from 501 schwere Panzer Abteilung, two Tiger IE and two Panzer III N tanks" lost two Tigers to Churchills. Other sites mention an an attack by two Churchills of A Troop 51 RTR that destroyed several vehicles and six anti-tank guns as well as two Panzer IIIs. Were the German losses both from 501 heavy section and were the Churchills in both actions from 51 RTR?
