1. ’89 Countach reviewed:

2. Tea making in the tank:

Less than a week after the invasion of Normandy, the British 22nd Armored Brigade was ordered to break through the German line and head for the city of Caen.

About 18 miles away from the city, at a location known as Point 213, the armored brigade stopped to let the officers hold a meeting in a house near the village of Villers-Bocage, and the crews of the tanks of the brigade left their tanks to brew tea in kettles outside.

Unfortunately for the British, who had so far seen no enemies, a German Tiger tank commanded by Michael Wittmann was only around 600 feet away, along with four other Tiger tanks.
