    The attached is taken from a Canadian Army document issued by the Chief of Staff on 10 May 1944, which is a recommendation to see and retain the attached report dated 12 January from the 8th Army based on research undertaken during the Italian campaign. I found it at War diaries : T-6680 - Héritage. Brave men to get 20 yards from a tank to fire, but many did it.

    It disturbs me that the citation reads "Mark IV tanks".

    Alternatively it can be used very successfully for blowing holes in walls when House Clearing.!!! Especially terraced type buildings.
