Amongst the rarest items we encounter in the Balltefiled relic world, we have those used by the Blue Division, rare, because all the German equipment and weapons were returned when the unit was repatriated to Spain. Therefore the only material we can find today are those items smuggled as souvenirs by the returning veterans or those left behind in the battlefields in Russia.
A fascinating fact was how the Spaniards combined their Spanish equipment and insignia with the German. So we encounter a rich combination of material....
It is necessary to address the fact that not all the relics found in the sector of the Blue Division, necessarily belong to the unit. In most cases the positions occupied by the Spaniards were handed over to the Germans, who in turn occupied and hence the things found in them more than likely belonged to German soldiers. Those positions that were exclusively defended by Spaniards and due to the nature of the fighting were overrun and ended in soviet hands such as those of the fighting in Krasny Bor, Voljov bridgehead (Possad, Otenski, sitno, tigoda, Duborvka), or those that changed hands several times like the "Intermedia", Posselok, Synavino heights, Teremez is where items that might belonged to Blue Division soldiers can be found.
Now, unless the items recovered are Spanish or bare any symbol that identifies them as such it's hard to tell whether the former owner was Spanish or German. In the case of helmets its extremely hard as most of them did not bear the Spanish volunteer issue decal.
Here we have several items recovered form the Novgorod sector and principally from the Black February Battlefield, Battle of Krasny Bor!!!
