On Saturday, I took my photo to the only German I know in Corpus Christi, and the most she could come up with on that name is that it starts with:
HAUY and could not make out the rest of the letters. :ko: Of the listed cities, towns, villages, what would you think on this?

The closest on any of the names of places liberated by Americans during that battle that I can come up with but still does NOT jive with names I found is: Hoffelt. They were liberated by the 6th Armored Division on January 21, 1945.

About 2 weeks ago--I believe I solved the mystery surrounding this photo which indeed--is from the Battle of the Bulge. I fully believe that it was taken in Huy area--which means that it would be a tank from the 5th Corps in which if I recall? the 6th Armored Division was part of and which faced and fought part of LSSAH and Kampfgruppe Peiper. I stumbled onto some info while reading of all thing--one of my books from osprey which was about the Ardennes Offensive. Ill try to remember to write down the info I read in the Osprey book that I believe pertains to this photo. I might be wrong on Div Nr but I think it was the 6th? I got that idea from someone from the USmilitariaforums.com

I have no ability unless I send someone a copy of it. My tablet has no capability, and the library computers dont allow you to. :rain: I may send a photo cd to a friend of mine in Sweden who will post--but that's a few weeks off.. :rain:
