    Default Half buried sherman

    Here is a link to alittle film and afew photos and of a sherman turret and they recon the rest of it is buried under it!
    There is a real good shot of the turret detail if you know the differnt sherman variants,it's even got a chassis number photgraphed I think.I can't see a barrel or find eny story about it little puppy,it seem's abit strange for them to dig in so maybe its post war.Still I will try to find out more about it or if enyone know more pls post.

    Wasn't this one of the Dutch post war "static" defences ?

    Hi Gary, yes it is. Down near the railway line near the river.

    Cheers, Ade

    I believe there was a sherman turret uncovered during the clearing of the Polish DZ on the Driel side of the river, ... that too would have been along the railway embankment stretch/ vicinity of rail /road crossing towards Elst.
    The post war static defences might explain that one as well.
