    Here my German haftrack wheel from Trun.
    What I really wanted was a Panzer wheel but could not get it off.
    Still looking for one.
    I will post some pictures of the Museum in Saumur if I can find them.

    Michel this is at the Point du hoc.
    But it was given to the location by the tank museum in Saumur by the French Colonel that was in charge of it back in 1994.

    So, I ask to a friend leaving in Ste Mère, there is the legend of the tank in a hole, since 25 years. Not far from his farm, a piece of SDKFZ 251/17, at 5 or 6 meters in the ground.

    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    In the 70s there were still panzers in the woods... And 40years later you are a millionare if you have one of them.. weird...

    I dont understand why humans always have to destroy their own history. If we destroy everything and every trace of the hard times, we learned nothing.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
