Deserted French Panhards in Brabant - may 1940

German soldiers enjoy a break in the flooded area in Zeeuws Vlaanderen, where the hasitely retreated French 7th Army have left much able material behind.

In this sector one single German SS battalion with only a handful of light armoured cars at hand managed to chase off French tanks and armoured cars as well as a shear number of French troops. Up to this day it is a mystery why the French disgraced themselves in such a way in this area.
