Ancestors in Paris in 1944

To answer anonymous, the
only man in Paris in 1944 would
have been by mother's father. But
he wore cufflinks and leather shoes,
even when his shirts were threadbare
and his shoes had holes in the soles.
He would never have been seen in public
in a tank top. He was in the Coldstream
Guards.

To be pursued only if you wish ... the man was wearing a tank top - Coldstreamers operated tanks during WWII - and in August 1944 - the liberation of Paris - could tanks have rolled into the city carrying Coldstreamers in tank tops?
