Photos from a Dutch war museum. Jackal was in No 2Sq HQ troop and was commanded by Capt Dick McDougal; it fell victim to the new Riegel mine on 12th October 1944 in front of Overloon, which is where it is today. You can see how the Riegel mine tore out the bogies from the left hand side and also penetrated the Churchill’s thick belly plates which sadly caused heavy casualties. Capt McDougal lost a leg but is still living in London today.
