Tanks as Monuments / Displays


Recommended Posts

To add to the files---here is the M-41 Walker Bulldog in front of the Virginia National Guard HQ...it has the same chassis as the M-42 Duster we are refurbishing---

 

 

and when the Duster is finished our next project is this Sherman. Lots of work but well worth it.

Here's me taking a picture of my two boys last year at, the new York state military museum, they were setting the Sherman tank in the front of museum, it was sitting in the back of the old armory for years. My son's school is across the street, we just came from one of his track meetspost-11207-0-53045800-1496811417_thumb.jpg

Here's a photo of it's platform being built. It is given the Bumper Code of 7th Army 191st Tank Battalion, A Company. The 191st Tk Bn was one of those Consolidated Tank Battalions formed in 1941 from existing National Guard Divisional Tank Companies (Stanton gives a February 1941 date).

 

A Company of the battalion being formed from the NYNG's 27th Division's Tank Company, the 27th Tank Company, the 191st  Tk Bn sees action in Italy as a 5th Army Troop Unit attached I think to the 3rd Infantry Division, it goes in in the invasion of the French Riviera now as a 7th Army Troop Unit where it is attached mostly to the 45th Infantry Division.
