Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:


This is a late model Sheridan without mine kit, with a slave receptacle outside and with a late style headlight guard; it may have come from 82nd Airborne (source: M. Holloway). It is therefore presumed to have come from Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
