Those vehicles were all in a hall near the museum entrance. Now on to those in the main Marshall Collection hall.

Walter has sent me a bunch of photos of the Panther during and since restoration so I have added those (thanks Walter!). I particularly like the view into the turret. The 'time machine' view is now working well:

No - I didn't see a gap for the hull, just the one for the turret.

Did you take photo's of the inside of the hull ??

A large section of the hull floor between the engine fire wall and the transmission is gone
Only things remaining are a broken drive shaft hanging on the fire wall and some gears from the transmission.

Now the Overloon Sherman with 34 photos, from the recent trip and from my previous trip in 1982. I'm particularly interested in tanks with a combat history, and fortunately it is known how this one was destroyed. Tim and I were looking at the damage and noticed that you could see an exit hole when looking into the 75mm penetrations, so I took some photo's to highlight that. Also, encouraged by the work on Sherman markings by Kurt, Hanno and P.-O. I have recorded the various markings I found on it (though not all the casting numbers):

UID 1699: Overloon M4 Sherman Tank "After Hitler"

Thanks, Michel, that would be great. I'll work on what I've already got, then I'd be interested in adding your photos (I've also got lots from Lesley to add). Your register was very useful in planning my trip.

Trevor,

if you need some picture's, let me know

Either I already have them or can get additional photo's

Only problem will be military barracks, because civilians doen't have acces to them unless there is a museum at the same location.
