Sherman tanks of the Indian Army, 1944

Photograph, World War Two, Far East (1941-1945), 1944.

The Indian Army first received the American-made Sherman in 1943. Although it was no match for the best German tanks, it was much superior to anything deployed by the Japanese in Burma.

From a collection of official photographs collected by Major General (later Lieutenant General) Sir Frank Walter Messervy.
