shape of that turret clearer now.
It's a Grant rather than a Lee.
Owen does that meant it is Lee Grant MKIII??. i am not much familiar into machines.
M3 Grant & Lee had different turret shapes.
see this thread for photos to compare.
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.
good afternoon imphalcampaign,yesterday.09:54am.re:burma campaign,m3.grant tank.interesting thread.just looking at the tank and noting the fabrication.ie.bolts and rivets.it must have been a time cosuming job to build one,thank for posting,stay well bernard85
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
