'Cuckoo' Captured by the Coldstream Guards
For this one look toward the rear of the photo:
PzKpfw T-34 747(r) of 10th Panzer Division's 7th Panzer Regiment.
Found a Dutch site with some of the picture's of Cockoo.
Look like somebody beat ya to it!!!
Yeah true but i still might add it to my collection. Hmm new collection, models of captured vehicles.
Captured armoured car 1944 SdKfz-251/1 "Starowka"
Is anyone aware of any German units posted from the eastern front to the western front that brought any captured soviet vehicles with them?
I'm intrigued by the possibility of a cromwell/churchill/shermen, etc vs t34 battle.
This excellent site might help;
There are some shots of T34 & KV2 tentatively identified as part of a German force destined for Malta and some speculation on whether a T34 can be seen in France on one image. At the very least it's good starting reference for what units used which vehicles... and a fascinating website.
Here's one of a Churchill Mark III recovered by the Germans after falling into a hole on Dieppe's promenade.
If memory serves correctly, her name is "Betty".
You might find this interesting.....
