Panzer Regiment 5 - Sidi Mufta

Hello,

Hello! Happy to have found such a forum! cool

I have found an interesting grouping to a Panzer Regiment 5 Panzer man. its a 'woodwork' find and a very interesting grouping!

He was KIA on 30.5.1942 when the Pz Rgt lost 11 Tanks.

His name is Günther Beniers - Volksbund information I have already.

I am going to post the grouping up in the coming days, its small but very interesting!

His Urkunde for the Panzer Assault Badge in Silver signed by von Bismarck (RK - KIA Africa).
His Panzer Badge in Silver and his Wehrmacht Tank Licence with Picture.
A Letter (returning the items to his Parents n Berlin).
A Death Notice 'cut out' from local Newspaper.

Whats interesting about the grouping is the fact that who ever was close to him removed his Panzer Badge and his Licence and his Urkunde (With other items) and sent them back!

I am wondering if anyone has any more information on those 11 Tanks destroyed.

Is it possible to find pictures of the knocked out tanks or the tanks before that action?

I will upload pictures soon :-)
