Wow I found my log in so your all in trouble now.

Clive, the wonderful Minitracks serries has a booklet on the German PAK's and includes one photograph of the 97/40 - the only one I've ever seen, and good (production) information on the 97/38.
You can see a good deal of the publication below but unfortunately not that picture.

Hi Clive,

Well that was a poor return to the board! My bad ... returning home I dug out the book and there is no photo to be seen just the same information about the 160 PAK 40 carriages used. I've just returned from a month in Europe with a stack of books and I'm sure I've seen a photo of the 97/40 in my new stash so give me a moment to search through them.

Regards Jon

Very nice picture, bunkerman.

The 3rd wheel has to be used to push the gun like that.

Here another 7,5 cm Pak 97/38 on the Atlantikwall. This one was re-used by the French FFI against the Germans in the Lorient pocket in 1944.

Nice Manuferey. Didn't know Henri Cartier-Bresson was a front photographer.

Thanks Alan,

Wonder what they used for a limber. Bloody big collars on the uniforms.
