Now that's a classic! Really cool that they chose to display this panzer with the fuel cans. Thanks for sharing Alan!

This tank was number 232 of s.Pz.Abt. 501.
It took part in the thrust towards Beja and was left behind after the battle of Hunt's Gap. It was beside Tiger 142 which we see in some famous photos.

The museum's caption about its capture was wrong the last time I looked.
