PostSubject: Tiger Tank Harz Mountains 1945 Ruebeland   10/3/2015, 15:22

Hello from Germany.

I`m looking for soldiers, that took fotos of a tiger Tank in Ruebeland Harz-Mountains 1945. British troops replaced Americans some weeks after VE-Day and it is reported, they often stopped at the Tiger wreck
at Ruebeland and took fotos.
The tank was hit by 2 Panzerfausts by the crew, and then left there.
Tank was to be seen 2 years after end of war,
In August 1945 we came under Soviet occupation.

I hope to get response or a foto !

regards from Blankenburg/Harz Germany

Hi Schirmer,

Sorry, no photos of the tank! It would seem that the following listed American Unit visited Rubeland

8 Armored Division
36 Tank Battalion
Company D

http://www.8th-armored.org/pics/36d_pics.htm

I have quickly looked at the photos headed 'Rubeland' and read some of the text.

Maybe you will find what you are looking for now that you know the name of the American Units from the area in 1945.

Good luck in your search..
Regards Alan

Hi Schirmer,
Are you a member of this 'Panzer Archiv'?
There are lots of photos and explanations about the panzer photos you mention in Rübeland

Hello Schirmer,

Are you interested only in the Ruebeland Tiger?
I have found two pictures of German tank wrecks near Braunlage, not too far from Ruebeland. The uniforms of the soldiers seems British. Although there were a great number of German armoured vehicles destroyed or abandoned in the Harz area, there are only a few pictures.

Panzer Mk IV
