British troops including men of 1st London Irish Rifles clamber over captured German tanks at an exhibition of enemy equipment in Forli, 30 January 1945. The sign advertising the exhibition features the 'Two Types' cartoon characters made famous by the '8th Army News'. Vehicles on display include a Tiger I, Pzkpfw IV and Nashorn self-propelled gun.

An attempt to stop the Americans from bombing/straffing it perhaps Wink

Probably there for when the bridge was being carried around on top of the Valentine. Most (all?) allied vehicles had stars on top (a feature rarely modelled, I feel) in NWE.

If you look closely, the bridge is still attached to the Valentine.
