The Chrysler A57 Part II

I recently made the acquaintance online of a fellow in Belgium named Fons Paulussen who has a website devoted to various militaria projects that he and others in the great nation of Belgium have worked on. The pictures are from his excellent site and he has graciously granted me permission to republish them.

Fons has asked me to mention that the Sherman Firefly is from the Royal Army and History Museum in Brussels, Belgium. The Firefly is an M4A4 Sherman which was upgunned with a British 17 pdr to give the crew something that could deal with later German armor. It may not have made the Sherman any safer, but it could sting a lot better than the standard issue 75mm gun originally fitted.

Here's a link to his site.
