Sherman recovered in Iraq by the 3rd Infantry Division, September
2003. These pictures were sent to me my David R. Olsen.
Pictures #3, 4 and 5 show the very same M4A3(105) HVSS in Northern
Kuwait, February 2004, where it was photographed by Russell Baggerly.
Picture #6 was posted by Mark Reboy, who found this Sherman at the
base in Taji Iraq (North of Baghdad) and posted this photo of him on
it (ref. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/G104/message/4826).
I have altered the location of the pictures. #6 is now in the folder:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/G104 > Photos > Shermans in Iraq;
#1 through 5 are in:
