This Sherman belongs to Remco Sijben, a member of the Santa Fe military vehicle club. It is stored in one of the hangars of the Santa Fe club at the former barracks complex in Blerick (source: TWENOT). Remco Sijben also owns military aircraft including an AT-19 Stinson Reliant.
This M51 is in running order and took part in the Open Monumentendag Kazerne event at Blerick in 2009, and the Santa Fe event at Horst in June 2010. It was on display at the Overloon Liberty Park Oorlogsmuseum in June and July 2012 following a Santa Fe event there.
