Response to Sherbrooke Fusiliers "Bomb"

...and the tank was a good deal of the way through the process of be refitted to be returned to stores. Any track welded on would have been removed and it is possible that this also resulted in (necessitated) the removal of the armour plates over the DV ports - or maybe not.

I would not read too much into the absence of markings at that late date - early in the campaign it would have been marked to standard (not doing so would be tantemount to mutiny.) In the photo to which you are referring, the finish is quite mottled and the tank cold easlily have been partially repainted to cover up the scars from the removed track welds.

Note that the "bomb" is rendered in chalk (as could be the CIII)and neither may have been present during hostilities.

Sorry have no idea what the CIII means.

Scott is correct - Holy Roller also survived the war.
