Sherman 'Flame' tank recovered
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Here you go Neil...

Texas Military Museum Newsletter

As for the Tank, I've been told that the restoration is supposed to be done by one of the maintenance units. I assume it is currently in the 'works'.
