    WANTED - Documentation and Photos for Sherman VC "Firefly"

    Post by Packhow75 on Tue Apr 17, 2018 9:38 am

    I looking for any documentation and photos relating to the Sherman VC "Firefly" - Sherman IC also.

    This to aid with the restoration of a vehicle which records indicate ended service with 21st Canadian Armoured Regt in June 1945.

    Happy to consider original material or scans/photocopies.

    Very keen to obtain WW2 vintage interior pictures and anything giving clear unit and recognition markings.

    Also, documentation wise, anything, though especially anything which may have been published by the Canadian army, rather than the British army.

    Restoration blog here - though at present we are only just starting out and presently have just started remanufacture of interior tin-work, so there's not so much to see.... www.facebook.com/T289477

    Many thanks

    If I was you, I'd post these request on a modelers blog. The guys who build the scale versions of tanks are sticklers for detail and will probably have all the documents you're after.

    I checked the site I posted a link to. Hiding on the page was this section specific to the firefly.

    All the best,

    If you find any other links, please drop them in here - especially keen on any militaria dealers in Canada who stock documentation.


    Cheers
