Tanks shipped to the British forces in the Middle East

Tanks are the common factor in two tables in the Official History. One table gives tanks shipped to the Middle East from the UK in 1942, up until September:

January 60
February 143
March 74
April 264
May 113
June 179
July 114
August 254
September 34

This shows the tanks shipped to the Middle East from North America:

January 102
February 192
March 251
April 73
May 25
June 3
July 33
August 132
September 407

We don't know this, but we can only imagine that many of the 407 in September were M4 Sherman tanks. This information is from Vol.III of the Official History: The Mediterranean and Middle East.
