This Sherman tank was recovered from Start Bay in 1984. It was lost during the disastrous Operation Tiger operation in April 1944 when German E-boats attacked the American flotilla during the pre-D-Day exercise. A total of 749 American troops died in the attack, more than were to be lost in the subsequent D-Day attack on Utah beach some two months later.
