Churchills in the Normandy Campaign
Churchill tanks were amongst the first armoured vehicles to land on the beaches of Normandy in support of the Allied invasion of France on 6 June 1944. These were the specialised tanks of the 79th Armoured Division. Known as ‘Hobart’s Funnies’. These first tanks ashore were specialised Churchill AVRE (Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers) tanks developed to perform combat engineering tasks, not the standard Churchills of the Infantry Tank Brigades.
