This tank was sent to Britain for evaluation, but although given the British designation ‘Sherman IIIAY’ was not adopted for service. It was exchanged with the AFV Wing at Shrivenham, who were given a Sherman Grizzly. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
This M4A2 was transferred from Shrivenham in 1985, and is in running order. It took part in Tankfest 2004, 2008, 2009 and 2010, and was on static display at Tankfest 2011.
