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. At this location, near the Bastogne Barracks there used to be two turrets. In 2006, both turrets were still there. Later the right turret as seen from Bastogne disappeared. We suspect that this turret was eventually placed on a tank in the Bastogne War Museum. More information about this can be found in this article. In 2022, both turrets are gone, only the foundations are still visible. The left turret is now located at the road Assenois.
