Currently the C-IED task force is a tri service formation including units from the Royal Navy and RAF.  The most dangerous part of their work involves locating and isolating IED's before they explode, in this case making roads safe to use.

 Oberscharfuhrer Ernst Barkmann in Panther 401 accidentally found himself as the spearhead of the 2nd SS Panzer Divisions night assault on the crossroads at Manhay.  Initially mistaking a lone Sherman of US 7th Armoured Division as that of his own commander, he pulled alongside the enemy tank, and only realised his mistake when he noticed its unusual red interior lights.  In a brief close quarter fight he managed to destroy the M4 with the Panthers anti-personnel mortar (Panzergranate)  He then proceeded along the moonlit forest roads past a succession of surprised American units to Manhay and on towards Liege, having left several destroyed vehicles in his wake.  His appearance caused havoc in the US defences, culminating in a rout.

Night Drive to Manhay, Barkmann in the Ardennes, 24th December 1944 by David Pentland. (GS)

During the static phase of the Korean War, tanks were emplaced in hull-down positions among the entrenched infantry companies on commanding hilltops, from where the accurate, direct fire of their 20-pounder guns dominated the surrounding terrain. They were also armed with co-axial Besa machine-guns. The tanks were protected from shellfire by sandbags and earth-filled ammunition containers. Along with the crew's 'hutchie', ammunition bunkers were dug in beside the tanks.  By night, both sides patrolled aggressively in no-man's-land up to the opposing lines. Massed enemy infantry attacks occurred at night, and the supporting fire of tanks was an important adjunct to Divisional artillery. In May 1953 the Chinese mounted a fierce attack against the position known as the Hook. Throughout the action, the Centurions engaged the enemy and inflicted heavy losses.  In the eerie light of parachute flares, soldiers of 1st Battalion the Duke of Wellington's Regiment manned the trenches. The tanks themselves suffered on average five direct hits each from shells and mortars, without loss.  Over the gun barrel of the Centurion Mk 3 tank is an American searchlight, used to illuminate enemy patrols in no-man's-land at night. Several Centurions in Korea supplemented their firepower with .50cal. M2HB Browning machine-guns, obtained from the Americans or Canadians, on an 'ad hoc' mounting. On the rear hull is hung a spare road-wheel, and the Royal Armoured Corps flash is shown, with the unit serial '41' superimposed.
