      "Hello,

      I'm trying to explain why a former British M4A4 ended up on a beach in
      Southern France and was disabled on 15 August 1944 (the date of the
      landing in Southern France). Was it borrowed for the operation by the US
      Army? Is there any evidence that it served as a dozer in the British army
      before the transfer in the US Army? thanks.
      The bottom hull of that tank was recovered from the beach of Sainte Maxime
      city in December 2011. The tank recovered is an M4A4 but there is no
      evidence of a dozer blade.

      Pierre-Olivier"
