    Hi guys,

    Im quite confident that L.Br stands for Lehr-Regiment Brandenburg which was divided between XXXIX. Armeekorps and LVII. Armeekorps. This also corresponds to Lars' map.

    Will you completely rule out the "Engineers/bridge" idea? After all there are quite a few rivers in the area.

    Cheers
    Highly unlikely that a bridging unit would appear on a tactical map such as this , as this one shows the actual Frontline units , i think Andreas has nailed it with the Lehr Brigade !

    Lehr Regiment Brandenburg was certainly on the orbat of XXXXIX Korps at that time so is also the possible answer

    II. / Artillerie-Regiment 44
    1. / schwere Artillerie-Abteilung 427
    Sturmgeschütz-Abteilung 210
    Beobachtungs-Abteilung 30

    Pionier-Regimentsstab z.b.V. 614
    Pionier-Bataillon 43

    Lars,
    I've searched a bit further concerning the map.

    It should actually come from the book "Panzer-operationen" by Hoth.

    I'm pretty sure that the year is 1941 and the date should be the day, when the Smolensk pocket was finally closed.

    L.Br. refers to Lehr Brigade 900 as stated above.

    BR,
    Michael
