While reading histories in "Funklenkpanzer" (Jaugitz) it states on pg. 278 that on Feb 24, 1944 the company (3./ schwere Panzer-Abteilung 508) recorded that it had two successful men, a Unteroffizier Zinn with 11 American tank kills and Feldwebel Hammerschmidt with 6 more as a result of earlier fighting.

Feb 16-Feb 24, 1944
