While on a fire mission in support of American troops. When the round was fired the barrel (tube) split in half and drove the breech (weighing several tons) backwards into Tom standing right behind the Gun and the brem, the explosion also injuring three other crew members in the Gun crew.
You're not forgotten, RIP Tom
