    Brazilian Tank Crews

    1. Dear Sir,
      Firstly, congratulations for yours excellent blog!
      About the LIFE Magazine Brazilian tank crew, as a curator of Brazilian Army Military Museum here in Rio de Janeiro, I can say that Brazilian Expeditionary Force (FEB) didn't had any tank formation. The !st Armoured division provided fire and support for FEB and 10th Mountain Division either. This picture was shot very after the war.

    2. You are correct. Although Brazil received Sherman tanks during World War II, they were not used overseas. This picture was probably taken in the 1950's, in Brazil.
