It most definitely was 6pdr that won first British tank-vs-tank engagement vs. Tiger... And the same crew also got first British tank-vs-tank Panther kill in Italy.

The North Irish horse, if I recall correctly were the regiment (A Churchill one, with a few Shermans and others in the mix)

The Bovington Tiger 131 was K/O by 6pdr fire from 48 RTR (Churchills). http://www.tiger-tank.com/secure/journal.htm
