Frolicking Danes

*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw V "Panther", Ausf D
Serving in early 1945 with the newly established Pz. Div Feldherrnhalle 2.
The division was raised from survivors from the Pz. Div Feldherrnhalle 1 and various training units, which explains the presence of a 1943 vintage Panther so late in the war. The crew man on the far right appears to be a "panzer spiess", or company sergeant major. Identifiable by two rows of rank braid (tress) sewn around the cuffs
