Hello,
There is a photo of two panther A's knocked out across from each other on the road to Tilly in Normandy. I can't locate the photo perhaps some of you have seen it? I have a friend who plans a diorama to show this set of panthers. WE have a question hat type of camo would these panthers have painted on them we don't really see any camo in the one black and white photo he found in a book. any help would be great. I and Danny thank you for any info. Cheers, Brock

Are you sure you mean Tilly and a photo showing a pair of Panthers? Lingevres has a pair that are half-hidden in the shrubbery. There is a photo from the US sector in July of 2 Panthers very close together. A Google image search of 'Knocked out Panthers Normandy' will throw them up.

You are letting the image address run into the following text, Just delete all after the final 'g' in jpg. It is a common error.
