      Michel,

      I don't have the full story at hand, but IIRC a local man (dentist or
      doctor?) asked the Americans after the war for a tank to set up as a
      memorial. The US Army provided one from their stocks.

      I am quite sure the Brussles tank museum has the full story in file.

      HTH,
