Real long shot but worth an ask.
Does anyone here have photos or knowledge of a Sherman M4A4 with the following markings:
Between approx. August 42 and March 44, when I believe (not sure though) that this vehicle was in the USA for crew training:
- Name - Gaucho
USA Number - 3056683
After March 44 the vehicle was shipped to England and converted into a "Firefly" - Sherman VC and then issued to the Canadian 21st Armoured Regt (Governor General Foot Guards) with whom it served until June 1945 when it was struck off service.
It may have carried the name Gaucho in Canadian Service also or only in Canadian Service.
Ford GPW, 10cwt Trailer, 75mm Pack Howitzer x 2, M3A1 White Scout Car, M4A4 Sherman VC - s/n 4873
