Top view of a burned-out Jagdpanther, destroyed by Sgt. Middleton's PIAT in south of Stokt (Belgium). This was one of four s.H.Pz.Jg.Abt. 559 Jagpanthers destroyed on 11 September 1944.
Spoiler
"Jagdpanther was heading back towards Geel, infantry riding on top, when it struck C Company 8th DLI south of the hamlet of Skokt. It had not been possible to get AT-guns to C Company the previous night, but still C Company fired with every weapon they had. The enemy fired back and the Jagdpanther bore straight for Company HQ, but stopped just 40 meters from it. Right away Sgt J.K. Middleton, commanding a section of the carrier platoon, crawled about 40 meters with a PIAT and with his first shot disabled the Jagdpanther. The explosion killed numerous Germans and the survivors who tried to flee were machine-gunned by Middleton."
