Background[edit | edit source]

Sherman Ib was the British designation for a M4(105). These were given as lend lease instead of the preferred 75mm Sherman. These tank saw combat use with the 15th Army in Italy.

With the experiences of the 2nd New-Zealand with British Armor Support, 4th New Zealand Infantry Brigade was converted into 4th New Zealand Armoured Brigade. 105mm Sherman tanks were used as close support tanks.
