Tiger # 732 first assigned to Panzer
Abteilung 501, reassigned to the 7th Panzer Regiment 10th Panzer Division.


Looks like the locals are looking over the
Tiger, I don't see any 7.92mm coaxial machine gun, and the 88mm gun, has a cover over the barrel. Looks like no action today


Say, are those two guys with their backs to us, are they taking a l--k or are they OSS or SAS checking out the Tiger's running gear, we'll never know...
