Panzerwrecks 8: Corrections and Clarifications from Niels Henkemans

Niels Henkemans was kind enough to share some of his expertise on the Normandy campaign with us: “The Stu.Gesch. on p.32 and 33 clearly belonged to Stu.Gesch.Abt.1243 (the renamed 2./Pzj.Abt.243) as it was the only formation with those vehicles in the area. You can also ask Martin about this as we have been discussing this […]

Panzerwrecks 8 P82-83 – m.SPW (Gr.W) (Sd.Kfz.251/2) Identifier!

Panzerwrecks 8 P89-91 – 63 years on

Normandy guru Fed Deprun was of immense assistance with information with which to caption the photos on Panzerwrecks 8. In fact most of the photographs were discussed by Bill and I, Barry Crook, Timm Haasler, Hans Weber and Fred in a collective manner. During one of these discussions, Fred showed us some images taken at […]
