6th Guards Tank Brigade

Guards in Churchill tanks

This web site is continuously under construction and is dedicated to the 6th Guards Tank Brigade of which my grandfather was a tank commander and troop sergeant  in 3rd (Tank) Scots Guards battalion.  The site is intended to provide information about the Brigade and the battalions of which it comprised.  If you were in the Brigade or had relatives in the Brigade, I would be extremely pleased to hear from you.  Please email me at the address at the foot of this page.
