    When I first saw the picture, I didn't think it was Wittmann's as there are bushes behind the tank??

    But, there does seem to be something sticking up in the same place as the right rear grill, of 007.

    I am fascinated by this picture, it does look like 007..

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
