K.

Afraid to disappoint you, but 508 Tigers carried no emblem on the front plate. What you are seeing is a patch of missing Zimmerit. The light squiggle on the turret side is not present on this earlier photo of the same scene, presumably it's been added post-capture.

There are quite a few photos known of this Tiger, you can see some of them on the 508 pages at TIIF.de.

HTH,

Chris Brown

Chris,
No disappointment, I had no idea or expectation of what unit or what location at all. So, it is from the 508, a heavy panzer unit I suppose.
Thank you for you helpful comments,
Kerry.

According to Schneider, Tigers in Combat II, page 49, the tank belongs to 10.Kompanie, Div Grossdeutschland. It's the company commander's Tiger B01 passing SdKfz 251 of Panzerfüsilierregiment GD in the Achtyrka area. Several hours after this photo it suffered a mechanical problem and broke down. There is a second photo of the broke down Tiger in the book.
