Sherman Firefly Tank Leopoldsburg

This combination of an M4A4 with a Firefly-turret stands at the station of Leopoldsburg.

The tank is a remembrance to the order (0-groep) of general Brian Horrocks to the commanders of the groundforces which took part in operation Market Garden on Friday 15 September 1944 in the former Splendid cinema, opposite the station.
