*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw IV, Ausf D
A Panzer IV which has seen some action is resting in a depot.
The photo was most likely taken after the Battle of France, 1940.
Note the early method of painting vehicle numbers on small rhomboid-shaped pieces of metal. The rhomboid was the tactical symbol of armoured units.
