Guys,

Actually I need some help with L.A.H Panzer IV deliveries during Oct.43. I'm not sure about the 29 PIV's returned by the 1 Pz.Div, Heer, were these tanks re-issued as a new issue or did L.A.H collect these PIV's and also get 22 PIV's on top of the 29 collected from the 1 Pz.Div.

Cheers Mike

Hello Mike
according to accounts from I.Abt/Pz.Rgt. 1 (Heer), the tanks were handed over to the LSSAH in Italy, near Trieste. For instance this is written in Heinrich Kramer, "2.Kp./Pz.Rgt. 1":

"Am 29. Oktober (1943) ist es wieder einmal soweit. Alle Ketten und Radfahrzeuge werden einer Einheit der Waffen-SS übergeben. In Cosina (near Trieste) werden die Mannschaften verladen Richtung Deutschland."

Stefano,

Many thanks for the heads up. I always wondered were they collected them. Once again a big thanks.

Cheers, Mike
