    Great photos and thanks for sharing, it makes you realise how small the panzer 1 really was.
    That's right Gunny,
    This was really small size tank turret ( in comparison with the M-48's which i use to command in the Army ...)
    Just have a look on me (18 years younger ) , in the manhole.
    Cheers,
    John

    Thank's for the interesting photos Michel,
    It is interesting to observe some modifications on this Pz I tourelle in France, such as the removal of the front armour cover of the twin MGs and the welding on the position of the vertical cover , mounting a single MG.
    Also possible due to removal (?) of both LH and RH side observation armoured hatches, the welding over the thick plates too.

    Here is an other example, of a survived PzKpfw I turret on a panzerstellung fortification , on a beachside in southern Greece (Peloponese).
    This photos issued during the 80's and it is possible that today this ww2 relic is not in this position any more.

    Here is a picture of of a Panzer 2 at Bovington when I was there the other week, for comparison !

    They do seem quite small when up close to one

    EDIT: Slight mistake with the photo's there haha
