Jeff, the color ones & some of the B&W are from the Ordnance Museum. They appear to be from differing eras. The first color ones appear to be late 40s early 50s, later color ones appear to be from the 60s or 70s.

Hi Folks!

Interesting collection! Maybe Hunnicutt's collection of refereces for his Sherman book?

Puzzled.... Confused

Dennis;

The 'Mine Exploader' (can't think of the official name) Sherman ... that is the first actual picture I have seen of other than the assembly (T1E1 Earthworm) the Sherman pushes instead of riding on top of.

Are there anymore pictures of this special vehicle? I guess I need to 'pony up' the funds one day on the Hunnicutt book.
