    Two Panthers. The rear idler on the one with the tracks looks unusual. The idler on the one without tracks looks a little low too, but it might just looks different without tracks

    You're right, of course. I was thinking Grant when I typed Lee. Grant much better looking, in my opinion.

    Sorry but I don't remember if there was a name on the side of the Churchill. As you can imagine, I was in extreme (albeit happy) sensory overload

    Great photos, indeed. It's too far for me to visit, so I'll have to be satisfied with your pictures and commentary.

    Fantastic photos, Dave. Since I could only salute one post in this thread, I was, for some reason, inspired to salute the one with the Hellcat. Hmm. :cool:

    The vehicle that is identified as a Stug IV is actually a Jagdpanzer IV. Otherwise, great job with the photos and thanks for sharing!
