    You remember, my friend dug up a bunker in the steel safe with documents, Wound badge...
    My friend made​a picture of burnt paper. This proves that in this bunker were soldiers of 517 Regiment, 295 Infantry Division.

    Looks like the HQ of the Regimental Staff of the IR 517 !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Excellent finds Andrey !!! Most likley that Werkst.Zg.bodenst.557 was an independant workshop unit . A Major wouldn't be in command of a Werkstatt Zug so probably again this is a place of Regimental or Btl HQ.

    Yeah, I agree with you. Major and zug is not compatible.
    We can only guess, military units often changed their disposition and there were could be anyone ...
    For me important that all items were found in one place ...

    How do you clean your items? Medals, paper, heavy rusted items, uniform bits etc etc

    Another day, we dug a large bunker next to the "burning bunker".
    Look at the photos, it was a cruel joke ...
