Short histories of Franz Eschner can be found at these sites. He served with 33 Panzer Regiment before transfering to 506. Initially a driver in 2.Kp he was drafted to the Stab.
He fought in Tiger I's on the Eastern front and Tiger II's during the Ardennes offensive, before surrendering to US forces.
Presumably #10 2.Kp?
Ardennes - Tiger I Barrel + Mantlet
