The Sherman Tank


The Sherman-tank was introduced on October 5, 1984, under the impulse of mister R. Verpoorten, at that time chairman of the VVV (information office), in the presence of The Minister of Defence, mister Vreven.

The tank reminds us of the historical order group (O-group) of Lieutenant-General Brian Horrocks to all the commanders of the armies who participated in the operation Market Garden.

The order group was given on Friday September 15, 1944, in the movie theatre Splendid, which was located across from the railway station of Leopoldsburg.
