Updated Vancouver M4A2 & Ram MkII photos
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.

While searching for something completely different, I re-discovered these more recent images (2013) of the Beatty St Drill Hall in Vancouver, BC and have updated the gallery on our site.
Included are a few detail photos of the Ram Mk II.

What is the box on the side of the M4? Telephone box?

that's an armoured first aid box. We think that the last 400 or so M4A2(76)s manufactured had the first aid box factory installed.

Cool, did not know that. Did any other M4s have that box factory installed?

The armored first aid box can be seen in photos of both the M26 and M24 in Europe before VE-Day. Initial supplies were reserved for these new models. They appear to have become available for installation on both new and remanufactured Shermans starting around March, 1945. There are quite a few surviving M4A1(76)s on display in the US and Europe. The armored first aid box (circled in red) appears on some but not all of them, suggesting that there was no later production of the boxes after 1945. Our examination of extant units for the boxes or tell tale weld scars indicates that PSC began to install these beginning in March, and that all units made from April, 1945 to the end of production were factory equipped with them.

the.shadock.free.fr/sh..._76w2.html

M4A3(76)s : Note that the First Aid Box is seen on some but not all of these vehicles. It would appear that, unlike the infantry phone, supplies of this item were insufficient for universal installation on Shermans that were returned to service in the early 1950s.
