Thanks Michel,

I forgot that there was an track page at the Sherman register

Youre rigth about the track type on the Sherman
The one on the left side is T49 style and I have checked the right side
It is T54 type and to be more precise it is T54E1 type
The cheveron is welded onto the carrier

Michel

Do you have found any number on it


I was hoping no one would ask.......I forgot to check
However, in an strange twist of the mind, I did check for the coordinates on the navigation system in the car Shocked

Can I make up with a picture of an CV-90 that was standing in Goes at the show?



Some of the boys and girls in green (no offence) where there for promotion with an Mecedes patrol vehicle and they had an CV9035NL parked outside

Pitty from the camouflage netting they put around it Sad

It almost looks like a "Holy hand grenade of Antioch" Monty Python moment. Sad


Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green
Funny movie!

I think it has something to do with a (re-)burial of a soldier
Link below is about two crewmembers of a British bomber.

Seriously, I hope it wasn't services for a lost crew


If I remember correct that is exactly what it is

Besides the famous vehicle collection there is also an small part of the museum concerning the other side of war

And part of this is, at least has been in the past because the subject changes from timt to time, are the shot down crew's from RAF and USAF plane's

I think there about 4-5 of these burriels a year, it is getting less over the years

If crew members from the RAF are recovered, they usually recieve an burial with full military honor at the local cemetery or an central cemetery
I think this also happens with recovered USAF crews, however they are all at the central US cemetery Margraten

Holland was the main high way for the allied bombers going to Germany and returning from Germany


There is an Dutch site concerning war graves in Holland and there are more then 470 cemeteries where Commonwealth graves are
About only 50 of these locations have more then +/- 25 graves, most of the others only 1 - 10

Is it possible that the Sherman "After Hitler" (a Sherman from Overloon) is RN 3026601

What the heck is being portrayed in the photograph in the background? It almost looks like a "Holy hand grenade of Antioch" Monty Python moment.

Seriously, I hope it wasn't services for a lost crew. Sad

There are some differences between the old picture and this new one
The most distinct one is the missing of the two exhaust at the lower edge of the rear plate Confused

I will add the SN and RN to the file
The best way to hide, is to hide in plain sight
