Cologne Panther

Hi Top. A USA combat photographer was on hand for this battle and you can catch it on film on youtube. This might be the same Panther that smoked a Sherman crew minutes before so they brought up the Pershing. One crew, poor Sgt bailed but his leg below knee was blown off and he bled out before he could get first aid

Jim Bates, 165th Signal Photo Company was the photographer.

Yup - same encounter and same Panther. There’s a whole website about it out there somewhere…
