In some of the articles that I have posted on this forum I have made reference to my Army Album.

I created this Album in 1946, while I was still in the Trieste area, and it has survived some 64 years !

I have now donated the Album to the Imerial War Museum in London, where it will be made available for the use of WW2 researchers.

I have duplicated the album on my Blogsite here:

Your English is quite OK Laughing

No Sir, the tank behind me was General Montgomety's M4 Sherman Tank

Best regards

Ron

I owe you an apology Embarassed

Shortly after I posted my article on the ww2talk.com forum one of the members wrote me the following.

"That's not Monty's tank, Ron.
It's a Guards Armoured Div Sherman, of 2nd (Armd) Bn Grenadier Guards.
http://www.ww2talk.com/forum/general...divisions.html
Monty's tank was the Grant next to it painted desert yellow."

It just shows you that old soldiers can have bad memories Laughing

Best regards

Ron
