Hello all,

I'm starting a build on a M4A3E8 that would have been used by the Royal Canadian Dragoons in Korea.

Looking for reference pics or info on following topics if any body has some:
1: Close up pics of the .50 cal mount that was moved forward of commanders hatch on some tanks. Was the rear mount simply unbolted and welded to new position?
2: Pics of the rear turret markings for a "Lazy D" symbol that was used by the unit. Can't find this anywhere.
3: Any close details pics of how frames were attached to sponsons to hold spare jerry cans, etc. I think most E8 units they may have use the bolts for the angled sponson supports. Or were they welded? Close detailed pics hard to come by.
