Tom Cromwell shares with us a walk around of the M4A4 Sherman that was on display at Duxford in June 2011.

Hi Ken,

Obviously been a naughty boy - PM Darren and he should sort it out.

Tom, we photographed the same vehicle

Hi Al,

You gonna post some of your pics of it too? (I grabbed mine mainly for the casting marks, and wished I'd got round the other side while it was parked up!)

If I'd known who to look for I'd have walked over and said hello...

I almost didn't stay to watch the arena! What drew me back to the fence was the announcer saying it was apparently the only M4A4 in the world that is still in running order. After that I just had to see it in action...

Hi Tom,

It is a great day out. I missed the drive round of the tracked vehicles, too busy taking pictures, talking to folks and looking in the modelling tent
