      I was struggling on what to call my next diorama. So as to NOT offend anyone I settled on the title above. I have three Panther A's (2 from Tamiya & 1 from Italeri). Two have zimmerit paste but all three are attached to the Panzer Lehr Division on June 6, 1944 in Normandy just east of Caen. Although it should be a simple vignette, I expect to have plenty of figures for this one to compliment the Panthers. I am in the process of putting on individual track links and then I'll get to the painting and the putting together of this diorama. Here are some WIP pics. Enjoy and as always all comments and critiques are greatly appreciated.   Semper Fi.   Manny

      Thanks I’ve been researching it too and I’d expect it was in German use

      Figured it out:  French GONON 41 knife - this site says they were used by Germans in WWII.  https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/269790-ww1-french-fighting-knife/
    • Bob Hudson
      What country produced those?
    • Garandrew
      Were these captured by the Germans for WW2 or obsolete?
