Hi,

Mittlerer Panzer vor der D..d..", could be Dender (a river in Belgium).

Can you check the photo, if there is a river?
BTW, it´s easier, if you show the picture + the writing on the backside.

Best regards

Thanks to all for your help. Yes it might be Dendre. I think D...b... is actually B...b.. or Bombentrichter or bomb crater (visible in the picture).

No one did mention a "D...b..." in this thread, battleofassche, except you.
What I wrote, and Armin confirmed in a certain way, is "D..d..". There is no B...b..or even Bombentrichter as you suggest. Just take a look on the preceding term to compare the "der = the", it´s the same "d" as in the term in question.
BTW, Armin also wrote "Dender", not "Dendre" like you. Be accurate, it´s important.

Thanks for that correction. Typo on my part. Dender or also spelled, Dendre, is a canal/river in Belgium. I have spotted the picture and it is in Teralphene on the east bank of the Dendre with a bomb crater visible. Again thanks for your expert help and apologies...

No worries! Just explaining what I´m specially looking at ;-)
BTW, great country you´re living! Been there a couple times (Ontario, Quebec), a lot of wonderful nature and very kind and helpful people.

Regards,
Roman

Glad you liked your visits to Canada. I live near the Rocky Mountains in western Canada so in winter much snow, clear blue skies and cold temperatures.
