[linked image] A thread below involving Martin Block (4th down) and others on 25. Pz Gren Div's armour status, referring to a single functioning "Pz.III" survivor as late as 1 Dec 1944 - interpreted to mean a "Bergepanzer III" in Martin's post and also listed as such by "Kelvin", although the latter didn't bother to back up with his source and if "Bergepanzer III" was in fact its exact wording, or just his interpretation, based on Martin's reasonably confident definition at the time:

And an anecdote in relation to another SPW photo which appears in the recent book Autumn Gale/Herbststurm:

You can see this Panzerfunkwagen more clearly plus many many other German and Allied vehicles in Autumn Gale/Herbststurm:

Arguably be the book of the year - definitely a keeper!

BTW the vehicle photo montages are also viewable on flickr.com:
