Sherman tanks refuelling while waiting to go on transporters, Normandy, 1944.

Photograph from an album compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3/4 County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North West Europe.

Approximately 18 Sherman tanks await their Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) transport vehicles. Transporters were used so that tanks did not have to travel long distances to a battlefield which could wear their tracks out before going into action.
