  1. about the sherman :Later production small hatch M4 Sherman, probably somewhere in the MTO or ETO.

    Those tankers are not wearing allied clothing.

    They sure look like Germans in a captured Sherman

  2. Colour photo captioned ” a British crew pal around …….” is actually a Sherman V of the Canadian 29th Reconnaissance Regiment (The South Alberta Regiment). The tank was commanded by Major David Currie (VC) and was nicknamed “Clanky”. Photo taken in Normandy around Arromanches in July 1944.
