Our website was created to help the family members of those who died and participated in Exercise Tiger. Dean Small, son of the late Ken Small, continues with his father's legacy. We are endorsed by the survivors and the families.
Royal Tank Regiment Association, Plymouth Branch
Beginning in 2014, the Royal Tank Regiment Association, Plymouth Branch,
have made a commitment to continue the annual memorial service at the
Sherman Tank Memorial Site established by the late Ken Small.
When the Tank Memorial was completed in 1984, the Royal Tank Regiment Association, Devon-Cornwall Branch, held an annual memorial service each April. We will always be grateful for their 30 years of dedication in remembrance
of those Americans who perished on April 28, 1944.
The families, survivors, and Dean Small express our sincere gratitude to the
Plymouth Branch for continuing the tradition of paying tribute to those who died.
