The British Cruiser Tank A34 �Comet� was designed to correct some of the problems with
the Cromwell Tank as well as providing better anti-tank capability for their squadrons. The
Comet was late entering WWII so it wasn�t involved in any major battles but with its new
main gun it could take on Germany�s large tanks. After WWII the Comet saw combat in
Korea and remained in the British inventory until 1958. The Comet was sold to 5 other
countries and some even operated until the 1970s.

�A� Company, Heavy Section, Heavy Machine Gun Corps took part in WWI and in 1939
was renamed the 1st Royal Tank Regiment. The British 7th Armoured Division earned the
nickname �Desert Rats� for its action in North Africa. They took part in the Siege of
Tobruk, Battle of El Alamein, moved to Italy and then Normandy. The Comet was a late
arrival in WWII and took part in the advance into Germany. Iron Duke IV belonged to Lt.
Col. Pat Hobart who was CO of 1 RTR, 7th Armoured Div in 1945.
