Pz III F-G-H Danzig 4 Pz Div 45.jpg

I've found this photo in Wydawnictwo Militaria 236 "Panzerwaffe 1945 vol III".
The caption says that this Pz III is "probably from the reserve unit attached to the 4. Pz. Div., Danzig, 03.1945".

Could someone tell what is this "Reserve Unit" ? Could this tank have been attached to the Stab./Pz. Rgt. 35 or to the Stab of one of the two Pz.Abt of Rgt. 35 ?

Thanks.

After some researches, this Pz III is an ausf. E or F upgraded and rearmed to new standards, the "Umbewaffnung Programm". (Jentz & Doyle, Panzer Tracts N°3-2)

In 1945, the Pz III were often seen in Panzer-Ersatz-und-Ausbildungs-Abteilungen (training & replacement units). But, as the front moved in Germany, these units were thrown into battle. In Wehrkreis XX (Danzig), there was Pz.-Ers.-u.-Abt. Feldherrnhalle, which fought in Elbing brückenkopf, and whose elements retreated towards Danzig.

Perhaps this Pz III belonged to 1./Pz.-Ers.-u.-Abt FHH. The photograph was taken in front of the youth hostel of today's Ul Walowa (ex- Wallgasse)
