      shape of that turret clearer now.
      It's a Grant rather than a Lee.

      Oh now i realise my caption is wrong. Its M3 Grant.

      Which would mean it was more than likely to be a command tank as not many Grants actually served in Burma. Most of them were Lees, with the Grant being reserved for command roles due to the extra radio space.

      the area around the Tank is much cleaner now and there are now steps leading up to it with proper information. This has been initiated by the Kohima Educational Trust (KET) based in the UK and the sister organisation Kohima Educational Society (KES) based in Kohima. From being merely an abandoned piece of military hardware, it is now a proper war memorial with a nice picnic area
