Likely within 30 minutes the barrel was replaced.
An incident like that shown in the photo is described in the book: Panzer Gunner: A Canadian in the German 7th Panzer Division, 1944-45 (ISBN-10: 0811735982). Highly recommend the book.
OK, now you’re driving me crazy. What tank is that? German uniforms on the onlookers, I think. Tiger 1?
