Unique ID: 772
Serial Number: There appears to be a number stamped into the transmission housing but it is difficult to deciper; it could be “180-71” or similar.
Other Identification:

The M3A3 was used exclusively by non-US forces, including the British, French and Polish. This example has been repainted in a three tone camouflage scheme.

Unique ID: 990
Serial Number:
Other Identification:

This M7 no longer has its previous green paint scheme, and is likely to be in the process of being repainted. It appears to have a sheet metal fitting in place of its mantlet.
It is believed that this Priest was acquired from the Commes collection (source: T. Royall) where it was previously on display. It was therefore one of three recovered from an LCT (Landing Craft Tank) on the sea-bed, three miles off Port-en-Bessin, in 1982. They had lain there since the LCT had been sunk on D-Day, 6 June 1944. The other M7s went to Saumur and the artillery regiment at Valbonne.
