Sherman Koepel Marvie

On all the major roads into Bastogne, Sherman turrets of different types mark the places where the German advance to capture the surrounded city was stopped. This is one out of two turrets which were previously situated next to the N84 road in the direction of Wiltz. The first photo shows the current situation, the second and third the situation before and the last photo the oldest situation, when the turret was still standing along the N84.

This turret was moved to its current location sometime before November 2020. It used to be just a little further up into the village.
