Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

In September 1944, during Operation Market Garden, the Allies planned to broaden their supply corridor from the Belgian border to Nijmegen, but they encountered stiff German resistance in the area of Overloon and Venray. A battle raged there for three weeks and included the only tank battle to take place in the Netherlands. This Panther Ausf G, with turret number “222”, had its right-hand suspension damaged. In June or July 1944 it was issued to 107 Armoured Brigade which was re-equipped and sent to Eindhoven, via Aachen, Roermond and Venlo, in September 1944. It was in action with this brigade at the Wilhelmina Canal bridge at Son and for the breakthrough of the Holland Corridor near Veghel (22nd-24th September 1944). During the battle of Overloon, where 107 Brigade made up the core of the German front, this particular tank was hit by a PIAT grenade of 2 Battalion, the East Yorkshire Regiment, and captured on 13 October 1944. The crew were killed.

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

This Panther has Fgst Number 128427 and is presumed to have been produced by MNH in July 1944 (source: Panther1944.de). Its engine is missing; it was used to restore the SdKfz Associations’s Jagdpanther (source: P.-O. Buan/SPTR). This vehicle was previously displayed outside in the Overloon Museumpark but is now housed in an annexe of the main building. It underwent restoration during 1999.
