    Powerful image. How defeated and forlorn a destroyed tank looks. From fortress to crematorium in a split second of high explosive.

    My Uncle Lawrence was a medic in the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry and part of 5th Division during World War 2. He told me the very worst part of his job was dealing with knocked out tanks and the remains of their crews. Imagine that - whatever side they were on.
