Vol 4 supporting images

On page 28 of Volume 4 an image shows a good close up of a mid production Ausf G of Pz.Rgt. 35, 4th Pz.Div. apparently falling through a frozen lake or river. I have come across this series of images that document an attempt at a difficult recovery of that vehicle. This first one is from a similar position...

From the other angle the plate across the turret roof described in Vol 4 is more obvious. This clear view shows the plate crossing in front of the cupola to cover the deleted signal port on the left side of the roof. This seems like an interim fix before the new thicker rear roof and uparmoured cuploa with a one piece lid could be fitted from Feb 43.

I did put in a bid on a few of them but was unfortunately unsuccessful.
