    Thanks for all the input on this guys. So we can tentatively say that this was a marking to establish the division that made the kill. Also, interesting to see that at least one photo has been reproduced. I suppose there would have been copies of such things floating around though. Cheers.

    Great thread and all i can add is that it does look more like a Griffin rather than a Dragon!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Probably a chap called Mr. Seventeen pounder I am now beginning to think that the insignia resembles a sphinx?

    Yes, I agree. I was just throwing another suggestion in there to see if there are any takers . The little bit of research I have done (not that I have endless resources on the Battle of Falaise) would certainly make sense with regards to the 43rd Div. Thanks for the time and research you put into it, and also to everyone else who commented

    The third photo is a different vehicle, either recovery Panther, or damaged Panther. I would think a recovery [turretless] Panther.

    SF.

    Third photo down in the original posting IS a BergePanther Recovery vehicle, identified as such by the cable roller set up on the rear decking and the raised box-like structure which can just be made out about half way down on the upper hull.

    Just been searching for more info on this , 2 Jagdpanthers from this unit were knocked out by Scots Guards Churchills of 6th Guards Armoured Brigade during Operation Bluecoat , south of Caumont near Hill 226 .

    The Wessex Wyverns were involved in Operation Bluecoat as part of XXX Corps , the 2 Jagdpanthers had been blown up by their own crews following them being disabled due to destruction of their tracks and suspension !!

    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
