AL Post 235 - Ft Walton Beach, FL - M4E9 Gallery
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.

Hi All,

We’ve added a gallery of photos of the M4E9 on display at American Legion Post 235 in Fort Walton Beach, FL. The photos were shot during the freezing rain/sleet storm that hit along the I-10 corridor so we didn’t have a chance to do overheads - it was a strictly grab the umbrella and the camera and shoot as fast as one can before freezing to death. Couldn't find a SN but photographed what casting markings I could find.

hello,

this could be a Pullman M4, that could explain why you didn't find any serials on the tow lugs.

Does anyone know the history of this vehicle? Was this a range wreck (hence the hit on the turret) or did this see combat during WWII? if so E9's deployed to ETO/PTO prior to VE/VJ have not been confirmed as far as I know.

Joe DeMarco told me that it came from the Elgin AFB. If it has the E9 suspension, then it has been rebuilt in 1945. I think that nothing is known of its pre-1945 history.
