Tawny Pipit features a rare appearance on film of a pair of Covenanter tanks. Designed by the LMS railway and Nuffield, they were delivered after the fall of France, but suffered from insufficient cooling making them unsuitable for use in warm climates like North Africa so were used for training in Britain by divisions who were often waiting to be sent abroad, then handed down to the next division before they were moved. By the time of D-Day when a front opened up with a suitable climate for the Covenantor the design had been rendered obsolete.
What kind of bird?
