Item Description

The Churchill AVRE series of vehicles was the brainchild of Major General Sir Percy Hobart following the disastrous Dieppe (Operation Jubilee) raid in August 1942 which saw the Churchill tanks of the Canadian Calgary Regiment decimated on the beaches due to the lack of adequate engineer support.

The result of this and Hobart’s ingenuity was the creation of a series of specialised AVRE vehicles based on the Churchill Mk.III and Mk.IV chassis with the main gun replaced with a 290mm Petard spigot mortar affectionately know as the “flying dustbin” due to its appearance. The 40lb projectile contained a 26lb demolition charge with an effective range of 80 yards.

The hull BESA machine gun was retained but the co-driver’s hatch was replaced with a sliding hatch that allowed the Petard launcher to be "broken" and re-loaded from within the hull affording the loading the full armour protection during the reload.
