Excellent stuff. I hadn’t realised that Mk IVs never got the appliqué armour. One minor quibble: you say of the Mk VII “The biggest improvement was in terms of armour-protection, which was comparable to that of the Tiger I.” I’d have said it was considerably better, and comparable to the frontal protection of Panther. The earlier marks of Churchill were almost as good as the Tiger I. All the best, John.
Oh thank God… I saw that Mr Picky had replied, but I think I got away lightly! 🙂
Thanks for that – I will correct with actual checked facts. I normally pull these ‘facts’ out of my half-remembered arse… 😉
