Why and how Deborah was buried

Despite the comment made by Madame Bouleux, there is now some doubt as to its complete accuracy. There is over nine hundred yards between the place the tank was destroyed and where it was buried. It is rather difficult to imagine how a whole tank could be moved over that distance by Russian prisoners. Philippe now has the proof she was buried by the British to be used as a shelter. New documents provided by David Fletcher confirm that opinion. D51 was moved by being pulled by other tanks to the hole dug previous to the Battle by German soldiers to establish a concrete bunker. The confusion relating to Marthe’s version may have arisen if some German prisoners assisted in that operation.
