    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

    27 tanks lost during the retreat in the Stepance - Ladance sector, correct about the new Tiger II in september, since beginning of 45 it was harder to recive new TII and refurbished T I were assigned instead of TII in total 74 TII and 94 T I out of 94 9 were assigned in 1945..... missing zimmerit and new smaller marking or allmost unexisting marking is tipical for last months of war, the crest shown is one of those.

    Thanks for all the help guys. It MAY be Meyer's Tiger "8" after being given to the 508th. Rich A. in Pa.
