Does anyone know the routes Sherman tanks were imported into Britain prior to D Day? I am researching the US army camp Marbury Hall, about 10 miles south of Warrington. I have a local resident's report of a large column of Shermans coming through a village close to Marbury. Would Liverpool be the standard delivery port or would Birkenhead, Ellesmere Port, Bromborough or Runcorn/Weston Point be a tank discharge port? Would an armoured regiment drive their vehicles from a northern port all the way south or would they normally be moved by train? Was there a problem with the loading gauge (width) of a Sherman on a rail flat car or were they capable of rail transport? I have searched the thread but cannot find any discussion. Any advice and or references would be considered most helpful. Thank you.
