      Alf Adams recently "discovered" a Waymarking site about military hardware on display.


      It has this entry...

      M4A2(76)HVSS Stanstead Royal Canadian Legion #5 S/N 65029 N 45° 01.152 W 072° 05.659

      That's a new one to me. It looks like they have welded the dataplate from inside somewhere on the outside of the tank? Don't think I've ever seen that before. It's on my "Life List" to visit all the surviving Shermans/variants in the US & Canada. I'm sure I went right by Stanstead on my way from Island Pond Vt to Sherbrooke, QP, but regret that I was not aware of it. The "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont & lower Quebec is very nice Fall foliage country. Anyone who's interested could probably do a combo foliage / Sherman spotting trip of Island Pond - Stanstead - Sherbrooke in a (long) day.
