Sherman Tank Gallery

Recommended Posts

Taking the lead from the British galleries and following on from the 'how many shermans are there' thread then we should have a central point for all Sherman tank pictures that we have taken around the world - range wrecks, museums, Mons, shows, scrap yards, dealers - in your own back yard! Etc etc.....

Here's mine first shot when we finally got to see her at Southampton docks almost twelve months to the day from paying for her.

Second one is the start of the 'nose' job, or the restoration....

Sherman Tank in Hechtel that now serves as a monument for the liberation of Hechtel. Listed on it are the soldiers that died fighting for Hechtel.

 

I've also added a then and now shot of the houses opposite the Sherman tank.

Sherman tank outside Ede. The sign says:

 

"On the 17th April 1945 Ede was liberated by the Canadian "Calgary" regiment with Sherman Tanks. This unit was then part of the British Polar bear division."

Omaha Museum. Noting the road markings, the public transport looks to be quite dated in the first picture.
