Neil,

We stopped by Parkersburg, WV and located the tank on display. It is listed in the register as an M47, but we found an M41.

I had called the VFW inquiring about AFV's in town and they sent me to the local Military Museum. I spoke with them and they directed us to Quincy Park where there was a tank on display.

The GPS coordinates(from my iPhone) are:

N 39° 16' 3" W 81° 33' 10.8"

Parkersburg, WV Part 2

The park is a beautiful location with a lovely view overlooking the town.

I found a plate on the rear of the tank and looked on the tow lugs for serial numbers.

Attached are the best I could come up with.

Guys - where do I look for SN info on an M41?

Lastly are photos of the M41 on display also at the West Virginia National Guard HQ - up the road a bit from the M7.

FYI - The WV Air NG unit further along the road has a nice P-51 displayed out front.

Cheers,
VB

Thanks VB!

Appreciate the Charleston WV M41 particularly.

Maybe someone can decipher the Parkersburg M41 plate?
