Aspects of the event
The 504 battalion retreated through Belpasso, Sicily, in the middle of July 1943. They were obliged to explode Feldwebel Kruse's Tiger in the town, on Via IV Traversa. The Tiger was probably numbered 223. This left the battalion with only 4 remaining Tigers. The three-meter wide tank thoroughly blocked the street which is 6.5 meters wall to wall. House number 92 seemed to be derelict, but house number 107 on the tank's left was occupied, and the massive wreck in front of their annexe door caused them inconvenience for a long time.
