Its indeed a Sherman, a M4A2 I believe. I've seen some pictures on the net with the same text on it, the same Sherman I think. I've got it at coordinates S09 22.301 E159 51.874, could you confirm that location?
About its history, I haven't got a clue, but one side seems to look like it was a range target or so. On the net is circulating the Jezebel for this Sherman.
Paul, just one question, can I use you picture on my register. reference to the author will be added of course.

> I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the Sherman tank (pictures attached) please. It is sitting in a field west of Honiara in Guardalcanal. It is a regular tourist site. Im certain it is a Sherman and have attached some pictures including what I think is a serial number. Id like to discover its history.
