Four M3 Lee tanks – on the seabed near Sambro Island (Canada)
The ship ��Kolkhosnik�� sank on January 16, 1942. Heading for Halifax to join a convoy, she struck an unknown object near Sambro Island and soon sank. Her crew took to lifeboats and all safely reached the Sambro lighthouse. The cause was first thought to be a torpedo, but no German submarines reported an attack and none were recorded in the area. More likely she was off course and struck one of the ledges aground Sambro. Her wreck was salvaged after the war. Today it attracts divers and underwater photographers, especially for the M3 Lee tanks carried as deck cargo (Marine Heritage database)

This M4A3 reproduction was used for the 2005 film ��The Great Raid��. The hull was used to build a Sherman M4A3 reproduction, because M3 Grant hulls are easy to find in Australia, and it was too expensive to rent a real M4A3 to make the film (AFV News forum) ��Colin�� - http://www.livesteammodels.co.uk/dhmg/grant01.html
