Oh I see you over there Mr. M42 Luftwaffe stahlhelmm looking at me all Lufty-eyed…
Last year on remembrance day we had an M42 brought by the school guidance counselor pass around our history class.
It was awesome.
During the last days of June 1944, this crew from the 3./schwere Panzer-Abteilung 502 found time to enjoy a sunbathing session on “Hildegard”. The Soviet summer offensive would soon start.
After a short employment at the Normandy Front, the 3./schwere Panzer-Abteilung 503 was reequipped with Tiger IIs at the French training area of Mailly Ie Camp. Since the crews were responsible for applying the camouflage paint, the results were quite varied. Some had the usual brown and olive-green spots, while others such as Tiger II 332 seen here had rather broad stripes of color. These caused some heated discussions with the company commander. The Balkenkreuz was usually painted on the center of the turret.
