The Sherman M4 Medium Tank series and their related AFVs are my favourite WW-2 vehicles. Over the years I have studied many surviving examples, taking note of the bewildering array of variants and production changes. This hobby gradually shifted into doing some research into their manufacture, (continuing) use and modification. And at some stage, as anyone with the same hobby can tell, one is bound to get their hands dirty on some of them. 

The Sherman Register has grown into a network organization with contacts around the world. It is dedicated to the preservation of Sherman tanks and related AFVs in the widest sense of the word. 

The goal of this publication is to publish the information which is not covered in mainstream books and magazines. The internet was chosen to publish our research as it is the best medium to exchange information with others and it enables me to update/add pages as soon as more information becomes available. What you see here are the combined efforts of many contributors and myself. Even though some pages are still under construction, they form a basis for discussion or further research.

Please see the index on the left for the contents of this web site.

    I thank all the people who have contributed to the Sherman Register in every imaginable way, today and in the past. 
    This is my first attempt to create a web site, so please bear with me. It is far from being complete or perfect. It will never become "complete" for lack of disk space and the fact that there is already a lot of information on the Sherman available, both printed and in electronic format. But who knows, with your help one day this site might come close to being "perfect".
