The Overloon Panther (need help)

Post by Bram79 » Sun Jul 09, 2017 12:32 pm

Guys,

I'm a volenteer at the warmuseum in Overloon. We have a Panther tank wich was knocked out on the 13th of October 1944 in Overloon. We are looking to find its crew. The crew was killed when the tank was hit and they bailed out. We think that the crew is burried at the German warcemetry in ijselstein the Netherlands.

The fahrgestell nummer (Fgst.Nr.) of the Panther is 128427 and its turret number is 222 (2nd kompanie, 2nd platoon (zug), 2nd vehicle) Panzerbrigade 107.

Does anyone know how I can find its crew or atleast its commander?

This tank gets some coverage in the Book "Kampfgruppe Walther and Panzerbrigdae 107 but they do not name the crew. The book does give the date as 12th October however which might help you locate any graves.
