This photo is taken after the failed attack in Norrey-en-Bessin when the Grenadiers of SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25 are moving out from Rots. At the late morning on June 9 1944 an combined arms attack was planned together with the panzers of SS-Panzer-Regiment 12 to seize La Villeneuve, as a starting point for a future offensive up north of 12.SS-Panzer-Division Hitlerjugend. SS-Hauptsturmführer Rudolf von Ribbentrop, son of the German diplomat and Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, sits in the sidecar of a motorcycle driven by SS-Obersturmbannführer Max Wünsche from SS-Panzer-Regiment 12. Rudolf von Ribbentrop is born on May 10 1921 in Wiesbaden and is still alive in 2011. Image: Photo by SS-Kriegsberichter Wilfried Woscidlo. Scan: Stuttgarter Illustrierte Nr 25 (1944).
