On 17 March 2015 I took this comparison photo of the spot where the first Canadian soldier died in the battle of Groningen on 13 April 1945, Paterwoldseweg 188.

Temporary grave of private Fred Butterworth opposite the place where his tank was hit by a German Panzerfaust.  Approximately on the same location, I made this comparison photo.
