You are obviously quite right John.  The interesting thing (for me) is just how many casualties the Tank Bns were taking amongst their non-Sherman crewmen over the course of the campaign.  If the Tank Bns were suffering crew casualties at typical US rates, then only 25-35% or so of their unit casualties were crewmen (whilst crewing tanks), the remainder becoming casualties in the situations Martin refers to.  I confess myself surprised, I wouldn’t have expected the non-crew casualties to have been that high.
