Anyone bidding on this photo should be aware that it is a very very poor copy of Bundesarchiv Bild 101I 297-1726-17. An high quality copy can be purchased directly from the Bundesarchiv or get a copy of Panzer Tracts No.4-3 Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf.H/Ausf.J 1943 to 1945 where we included this picture and some of the photos taken after it was returned to England for examination.
This Panzer had Fahrgestell Nr.86934 and was assembled in November 1943 by Nibelungenwerk in Austria. Based on information provided by PK Kurth this series of photos were taken while the 12 SS Panzer Division was in the Eeklo area of Belgium - however a local AFV enthusiast has informed me that this particular photo was taken in the village of Gistel near where he lives.

This is one of the photos taken by soldiers of the 463rd Ordnance Evacuation Company after they recovered Tiger 332 and were transporting it through Stavelot to the Spa railhead. They had to stop a number of times along the route because the tank did indeed overload their trailer. The photo has been published a number of times.

One has a Panzers MG34 mount for anti aircraft, another is jacking up the back with a super light coloured jack and using a sledge hammer as the jack block. And attaching the jack to? the exhaust or something..
