Hello everyone. I wanted to share an interesting find. I was intrigued by a photo showing a M4A1 Sherman Tank of the 741st Tank Battalion named "Asp II" crossing an improvised bridge in the town of Dümpel, south-east of Dortmund, 9 March 1945. Note the Sommerfeld matting and hedgerow cutter. I discovered that this tank was registered USA-W-3036841 and one of the battalion's survivors, seeing combat from Omaha Beach right to the end of the war in Czechoslovakia. According to his daughter Cortilla, the tank was commanded by Sgt. Mayne Youngblood (Service #34187616), who was twice awarded the Bronze Star.
