An M-48 tank at Waikiki

Waikiki beach is not a place where you would expect to find an Army tank, but there it is. I'm trying to think of the name of the old fort there. It's actually a battery of coastal artillery that has been converted to a museum, and several old military vehicles are parked on the side away from the beach.


This is located at the corner of Lewers and Kalakaua.


I need a little help. Is that a Sherman tank? And could somebody jog my memory on the name of the old fort? I have been there many times, but the name is lost in the cobwebs of my brain. I suppose Google Earth would tell me.


Got it! -- Fort DeRussy, thanks, Google Earth.
