Michael Wittmann Michael Wittmann (22 April 1914 - 8 August 1944) was a German SS-Hauptsturmführer during World War II. Wittman's crews (chiefly gunner Balthasar "Bobby" Woll, also a Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross holder) are credited with the confirmed destruction of 138 tanks and 132 anti-tank guns, along with an unknown number of other armoured vehicles. Together with Johannes Bölter, Ernst Barkmann, Otto Carius and Kurt Knispel (the top scoring German Panzer ace of the war with 168 confirmed tank kills), he is considered to be one of the greatest tank commanders in history. He is famous for his ambush of elements of the 4th County of London Yeomanry, British 7th Armoured Division, during the Battle of Villers-Bocage on June 13 1944. While in command of a single Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger he destroyed between 10 and 11 tanks, 2 anti-tank guns and 13 personnel carriers within the space of 15 minutes. The circumstances behind Wittmanns death have caused some debate and discussion over the years, but it has been generally accepted that Trooper Joe Ekins in a Sherman Firefly commanded by Sergeant Gordon of the 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry was his killer. However, in recent years, some commentators have suggested that members of the Canadian Sherbrooke Fusiliers Regiment may have instead been responsible.

46 Cheshire Yeomanry/ Arnhem battle veteran Bill Parker tells a horse story In 1942, the last British regiment to deploy horses (the Cheshire Yeomanry) lost there horses. They were the final unit to use horses in WWII after its being deployed in two units, one to South Europe, the other to England to become the 17SoL later deployed to Western Europe during Operation Neptune. The regiment became a signal corps after 1942. But before that, many lovely horsey stories were born. This is one of them.

Chelmsford Museum 21/55 - Es*** Yeomanry + guard duty The Es*** Yeomanry is a yeomanry regiment of the British Army. The Es*** Yeomanry was raised in 1797 and remains part of the current British Army order of battle. The regiment recruits volunteers from the county of Es*** in the East of England. The Es*** Yeomanry was raised in 1797 during the Napoleonic Wars as a number of independent troops. The regiment was brought together as the "Es*** Yeomanry Cavalry" in 1814. The regiment was disbanded in 1828, but with the expansion of the volunteer movement in the 1850s the regiment was re-raised as the "West Es*** Yeomanry Cavalry" in 1857. The regiment was disbanded again in 1877, but an "Es*** Troop" continued to serve under command of the "Loyal Suffolk Hussars". Today the Es*** Yeomanry tradition is continued through the men and women of the Territorial Army who serve as members of 70 (Es*** Yeomanry) Signal Squadron, which forms part of 71 Yeomanry Signal Regiment in the Royal Corps of Signals. The squadron headquarters and 881 Troop are located in Chelmsford with 882 Troop based in Harlow. Members of the squadron still wear the Green Beret of the Es*** Yeomanry and are liable for active duty under the Reserve Forces Act 1996. In recent years, soldiers from the Squadron have contributed to defensive, humanitarian and peacekeeping operations in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq. Following the announcement of Royal Signals Territorial Army restructuring on Tuesday 28th April 2009 in the Houses of Parliament, 70 (Es*** ...

Wittmann vs Ekins * Charts the military lives and experiences of Michael Wittmann and Joe Ekins from the time they joined their respective armies to the moment they met on the Normandy Battlefields * Using models and the latest technology the capabilities and merits of their respective tanks are ***yzed. * The film paints a full picture of the battle fought between the tanks of the Northamptonshire Yeomanry and the Black Watch infantry with the elite SS panzers. The story of two men destined to face each other on the battlefields of Normandy is told in this program. Michael Wittmann was a knight of the *** empire, a natural and accomplished soldier and highly decorated. Like Wittmann, Trooper Joe Ekins, a shoemaker from Northamptonshire, was a volunteer for military service but there the similarities ended. Joe was a reluctant soldier in a county yeomanry armored regiment, while Wittmann served in the Waffen SS's elite Tiger Battalion. Panzer ace Wittmann had 138 tank kills to his name, including an impressive score against 7th Armoured Division at Villers Bocage early in the Normandy Campaign but by August 1944 the Allied breakout was gaining momentum and I SS Panzer Corps were struggling to contain the British and Canadians as they fought towards Falaise. In the fields south of Caen Wittmann's Tiger and Joe Ekins's Sherman Firefly were pitted against each other but how was the Panzer Ace finally knocked out?
