    Pretty imaginative. You say "crosses". There are more? What sort of story goes with them?

    Yes, ther are more
    Crosses are on areas where 12.01-15.01 1945 took place haevy tank fights.
    Recently I learnt that 200 metres from my house an Elephant was destroyed

    This cross is a barrel of Jagdpanzer IV L70 probably from 17 Pz Div.


    And next cross. This time it's T-34/85 barrel with mortar grenades.
    It is located in the village Lisów where 424 heavy tank battalion (Schwere Panzer Abteilung 424) was defeated.

    That's really making use of artifacts! A very interesting way of paying 'respects'?

    Hi Paul, these are really interesting to see. Thanks for posting them. That Panther drive sprocket works really well as a decorative base.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Really interesting, you could walk right past them without realising from what they are made, thanks for sharing.
