Sherman riddles

This page lists a number of riddles or questions about Sherman tanks. If you can add anything - the definitive answer would be great of course - e-mail me. In due time I will post the answer(s) here.

"The Comb"
A small serrated strip of steel found on many Shermans and other AFVs. Nobody is sure of its intended use and this has proven to be the most persistent riddle for many years. Although someone has finally come up with a picture which seemed to put an end to the discussion, the riddle is still not solved completely. Read more about it on "The Comb" page.

Another Sherman APC?
Have a look at the photo of a Syrian turretless M4A1 at the page on Syria. Could this be another Sherman APC
