One of the very few photos of Polish Independent Highland Brigade from the campaign in Norway, 1940. Soldiers posing in front of a sign left for them by Germans to convince them to surrender. It says:

Soldiers of Poland
Do you want to keep spilling your blood for England for no purpose?
Come to us without your weapons, road to Warsaw is open to you.

Damn I never realised how huge the Nashorn is, seeing it next to the Tiger and Panzer IV now.

If you measure the Tiger I with the cupola (late production), then it's around the same height as Nashorn - including the overlapping gun shield piece.
