This Sherman is on display at the Court of Honor in Brooks Field, at the intersection of Chaffee Avenue and Old Ironsides Avenue. It used to have a propane-fired gun above its main armament which was used for saluting the flag on ceremonial occasions. It was acquired by the museum in July 1975. The Court of Honor consists of a flagpole encircled by plaques commemorating the U.S. armoured and mechanised divisions that fought in World War II.
