You know that:

  • The number 131 is based on the logical order of German heavy equipment, where 1= first company, 3= platoon, 1= first command vehicle.
  • The machine was first thought to have been captured by the 48th. Royal Tank Brigade at the Battle of Djebel Djaff on 21 April 1943, when a deflected shell from a Churchill tank disabled the Tiger's turret and the crew abandoned the machine.
  • But in 2009, something extraordinary happened. The Tank Museum in Bovington where the Tiger is preserved was visited by Mr Dale Oscroft. Mr Oscroft would have been shocked by the tank's story, which resembled that of his father John, a direct participant in the fighting in Tunisia. John was ordered to engage and delay the German tanks with PIAT anti-tank missiles until further reinforcements arrived. After he crawled in, he fired, but the projectile bounced off the tank. At that moment, British Churchills arrived on the battlefield. One of the British tanks hit the Tiger in the gun. The bullet slid down the barrel and lodged in the turret, rendering the turret immobile. The German crew abandoned the tank. The whole event took place at Gueriat el Atach, marked as Point 174.  Fortunately, many photographs survived from the scene of the fighting and so it was possible to confirm the authenticity of the new information unequivocally. 
  • The tank on display in the museum still shows the hit.
  • Before the Tiger crew abandoned the machine, it hit two British Churchill tanks, which were destroyed without the enemy being seen.
  • Lieutenant Peter Gudgin, the commander of one of the Churchills hit, later testified that the Tiger's missile hit them in the frontal armour, flew through the tank compartment to eventually bite into the engine, where it caused a fire. The Churchill crew left the stricken tank virtually unharmed.
  • The crippled tank was examined by the Secret Service under direct orders from British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
  • This machine was first displayed in Tunis and then in 1951 it was taken to the Bovington Tank Museum where it is still on display in full working order today.
  • In 2012 the restoration to fully operational condition was completed. The total cost of the refurbishment exceeded £80,000.
  • Tiger 131 has appeared in several war films such as Fury (Iron Fist) in 2014.
