This Churchill MK IV AVRE belonged to the 26th Assault Squadron, Royal Engineers which on D-Day was supporting the 7th Canadian Infantry Brigade.
During D-Day, while negotiating an obstacle,100 meters South (the monument is facing Southwards) of its current position, it slipped and fell into a water-filled crater. The crew bailed out, but while doing so was cut down by German MG and rifle fire. Four out of six crew members were KIA.
