Sherman tank

Back G. Maczekplein, Tielt

Here on G. Maczek Square you can see an authentic Sherman tank, a tank built by the Americans. They were often deployed on different fronts during World War II. The tank here commemorates the liberation by the Poles. It was in such a tank that the First Polish Armoured Division under the command of General Stanislaw Maczek drove into Tielt. The square was therefore named after this Polish General.
