(Sorry, I was on the wrong page.)
"Trail of the Tigers" by Ron Klages tells us this;
The battalion gets 12 Tiger II in June 1944, all with the Porsche turret, and all for 1 company. The other companies and the Stab are given 33 Tiger 1. They then assemble on the Normandy front on 7 July. They lose 8 Tiger 1 to combat in July and 22 in August.
The 3 company is hit by a bombing raid in July, and goes to Mailly to get Tiger II, but don't return to the fight until 11 August.
The remainder of the battalion have transferred out 3 Tiger 1 for maintenance on 1 August.
