additional image for UPDATE No1

I recently came across this image that shows the scene on p71 of UPDATE No1 from another angle. In the book we get a left hand side view of the stricken PzIV, which made spotting the rare use of lifting loops on the superstructure front quite difficult.

Although this image is quite pixilated they stand out well against the snow on the roof of the driver's compartment. It also confirms the use of the hoops on vehicles fitted with bolted tow points.

I have tracked down the location to Nenning, which would drake the PzIV a 11th PzDiv vehicle. The building is called the Schloss Berg and is now a luxury hotel.
