Wakefield firm restores WWWII Sherman tank


A tank which fought in one of the biggest battles of the Second World War has been restored in Wakefield.

City engineering firm TEi offered to restore the tank for free, with apprentices working hard to bring it back up to fighting strength.

The tank, a Sherman, fought with Nottinghamshire’s Sherwood Rangers during 1944’s Operation Market Garden.

Martin Kerry from the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry Association says: “This tank is very important historically.”
