    Default Hundinurk- Waiawara July 1-3 of 2010, 11 Kp Danemark positions

    So Guys, here I will make a report from our last trip, just come back home yesterday late afternoon.
    We work at the positions of Stabs KP Danemark, in the first line of line Tannenberg. The Danemark recieve very hard attacks, which kill approx all the Kompanie in that area. As you can recognize that is the north -ost of the Kinderheim Hohe at the field near the barn
    Total found 4 Germans and one Soviet soldier

    Firstly found cannister and some pouches. The cannister was used by soviets and was filled up with 7,62 soviet ammo, the Gurov found messkit, PPsch Drum etc...
    Belt and buckle found at the bottom of the trench, was at the closed position, the owner probably dissolved in the air after explosion
    The condition is much better than in other places, as you can see, there no holes trough even a thin metal

    We turn to the other point approx 100 meters from previous, and found two first soldiers, one has a stabs kompanie Danemark tab with nr 19, and most probably that one must be in officers rank, due this small number in stabs kp must be promoted trough the war to the officer's rank, even fe found some details from a aluminum piping. Again they was a hardly damaged, and stripped away by fire- no belts and minimum of personal stuff.
    Another tag looks like was a Heeres Flak, probably replacement in Danmark or who knows...
    One pic show the cooper ring from a 45 mm soviet shrapnel, in the head of the Flak soldier, we found that bodies was mixed up with a big quantity of fragmentations

    Under the german bodies we found the soviet soldier body, again with the hole in the helmet, and with piece of the scull inside of the helmet. The owner has a medal " Defence of Leningrad" with fashioned ribbon taped in the piece of celluloid.
    The rest of the items was found on the bottom of the trench, as a wallet and other ammo.

    Fantastic work Dim , looks like a good location i think there will be many bodies here because they were overun by the Russians very early in the Tannenburg Battles.

    Dim i've been checking my records and they show the following Officers from Danmark killed in action near this place.

    SS Untersturmfuhrer Arne Skov-Nielsen 5 / SS Pz Gren Regt 24 KIA 30/7/1944.

    SS Obersturmfuhrer Kaj Bertramsen Chef 11 / SS Pz Gren Regt 24 KIA 29/7/1944 Chundinurk - Estland.

    Maybe the Officer is one of them ?
