Re: Question for Hanno...Serial No.of Lt. Bialecki's Sherman T-145501 Monte Cassino?
- Hello Hanno
Thanks for the reply and hope you are enjoying Thanksgiving. If it's not too much of an inconvenience and when time permits could you at some point look up this correspondence? I know that Perry Rowe recently came back from Italy & Monte Cassino and could not find the census number on the monument.
Thanks for your patience and best regards

Reportedly, these were built Lima Locomotive Works, but photos of tanks from that batch show Sherman II, III and V, DD, ARV, BARV and Crabs, including a very early M4A1 and possibly some of the Sherman IV.
