Hello Joshua!

The two images are from the colour slides I have from the Propaganda photographer two years ago. I have converted about 200 color slides until now to small photo formats but this is expensive.
I found also lists with indexes for all the slides with photographer and date. I will have a look for the two above.
If my logo is on the image it means that I have the image either on original WWII photo paper or slide. This does not mean that it does not appear somewhere else as these were mostly photos by PK men with several copies. But if someone knows where such images from the collection I have appear I am interested.
Here the blow up... but not too good quality.

I just typed in 'Cologne'. The full title is 'Cologne captured' and the ID is 1145.26.
It is not the complete US sequence though, only the Panther kill is seen. The earlier bits where the Patton is moving down the street and the crewman falling off the back of the knocked out Sherman (minus his lower leg)is not in the film.

For those not familiar with the site click on the 'preview stills' option and when you see the stills clickthe one you want a close up of (a second click enlarges it again). You can spend many hours searching through this archive.

For German Newsreel clips go to :
http://www.wochenschau-archiv.de/

There are masses of clips on obscure SS Units and award ceremonies in this archive

It´s a KV1 Mod 1939 With a L-11 76,2mm gun in a cast mantlet...
The first model of KV1 to be delivered.That´s why I posted the pic I thought it was an uncommon vehicle ...
