Hi there

I am starting to plan an article based around the Sherman Firefly in in service Normandy '44. I have been fortunate enough recently to meet Ken Tout OBE, gunner in the 1st Northants Yeo. who has kindly agreed to look into a few gaps in my knowledge.

I also want to focus on the Sunshield/Houseboat attachement that was fitted to some Fireflys. I have seen some photos from an archive in Kew, though information is pretty patchy.

Anybody out there have any hidden gems of info that have so far remained untapped?

Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
