    very interesting to see airforce buckle...!!

    the MA stands for "Maestranza de Artilleria"

    a rather common buckle amongst the Blue División Soldiers...!

    I would like to know which place exactly in front of Kolpino...the yam ishora or krasny bor?

    In 1943, the Blue Division was moved from the Novgorod sector to the Leningrad sector. There it was to assist in the siege of the said city. In the south, The Soviets had been able to annihilate the 6th army by penetrating through the Italian and Romanian flanks encircling the Germans. Now in 43 in order to break the siege, the prepared a major offensive that would destroy the Spanish line.

    44,000 thousand troops along with 100 tanks were committed to attack a line held only by 5,000 Spaniards....


    On February 10th, at 6:40 AM the soviet artillery began pounding the Spanish positions..the barage lasted for 2 hrs...and then the advance began. To their surprise the Spanish came out and deafened their positions stubbornly, with the renowned bravery of the old Spanish infantry "Tercios" of the old age.....!

    Eventually the soviets broke the line, but instead of using the momentum achieved, they decided to terminate those pockets of Spanish resistance that still herald. This gave the unit time to reorganize, counterattack and stop the soviet offensive dead on its tracks.....but a great price....!

    Here we have items recovered from the Spanish positions in front of Kolpino..probably of Regiment 262:

    Did Spanish troops keep their ammo pouches so long?
