    Thank you Lebus for providing us all with the BEST 'in situ' photo of the Vimoutiers Tiger!!!
    And I love the map case you have in the photo too - taken in the 1960's??????

    Thanks for the link Paul!
    I knew of ( & had commented on ) this thread and didn't want to double up however the intent was to try to cover the whole chronology of what many have already said is one of the most striking pieces of the war.

    Yes, at the end of the 60's, it was my road between Falaise to Paris, the "little road to Paris" with some shops with good militaria, scrap dealers.
    The olny use of the tank was during elections, so people put "Yes" or "NO" on the turret...
    Now, there is a problem with it : to put the tank in a shelter, to repare it...It's a lot of money for the town.
    Cheers

    I was there in 2011, that's me standing beside the Tiger, with Phils dog Vimy in the foreground, and the bald guy is Phillippe G. From Normandy, a well known tour guide that tryed to put a Canadian Museum in Crulley (?) but was shot down for his efforts, he got so upset about that, he sold he vast Canadian D-Day Collection and moved to Croatia a couple of years ago .
