One of the successful Churchill variants used exclusively by the 79th Armoured Division (Hobart’s ‘Funnies’) this AVRE (Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers) was designed to destroy obstacles and pillboxes. It had a 290mm petard mortar (referred to by the crews as ‘flying dustbins’) and though the range was up to 100 metres, it was a fearsome and effective weapon.
