Hey Dennis

always look forward to your albums and this one in particular has some shots of Panthers that are new to me, if not others, so thank you for the effort.

If I may, I believe photo 148 is a front end shot of a 4./Pz Rgt 4 Panther lost near Aquino before 24 May.
The missing patch of zim outside of the mg port on the mantle appears to match the photo shown on P.41 of Panzer In Italy by Danielle Guglielmi as well as the vertically hung C hook. Even this photo though is a help as it confirms it has a TzF 12 sight, so again thanks.

cheers, Neill.

Dennis,

VERY cool stuff...I remember walking though the Norman countryside in 1981 and still finding scrapyards full of destroyed/abandoned armor - US, Brit and German...Shermans,Panzers, just about everything.

Thanks for keeping us feed with outstanding photo compilations...I get so many ideas from the shots you share with us.

Semper Fidelis,

Pat

Hi,

Bit late to this thread, but hopefully someone still notices.

In photo 26 the number 7 in the turret number has a line through it - while I know this is how they generally write their 7 in Continental Europe, its the first time I've seen it done that way in a turret number. Is this significant in any way? Maybe the practice of a certain unit? Anyone have any ideas?

Or maybe I haven't seen enough turret numbers!

Regards
Hans
