Sherman Tank located outside the Haliburton Branch #129 of the Royal Canadian Legion at 719 Maple Avenue.
This plaque is mounted on the side of a M4A2 Sherman Tank, found outside the legion in Haliburton. The plaque is dedicated to all ranks of the Canadian Cavalry and the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps.
The M4 Sherman, formally Medium Tank, M4, was the primary tank used by the United States during World War II. Thousands were also distributed to the Allies, including the British Commonwealth and the Soviet Union, via lend-lease. In the United Kingdom, the M4 was named after Union General William Tecumseh Sherman, following the British practice of naming their American-built tanks after famous American Civil War generals. Subsequently, the British name found its way into common use in the U.S.
