    That is not a good tag.

    FRW would be "Freiwilliger", DIV "Division" FZ I do not know KP "Kompany" but the way that tag is laid out it does not make sense.

    FZ = Füsilier, so all together come from: Divisions-Füsilier-Kompanie but the digits don't fit to any Füsilier-Bataillon (if I see correctly 2/8).

    This disk appears to be marked 278 not 2/8 so it could be from the 278th infantry division as it was in Italy 1945:

    278th Infantry Division:
    1/,2/992nd Grenadier Regiment
    1/,2/993rd Grenadier Regiment1
    1/,2/994th Grenadier Regiment
    278th Divisional Fusilier Battalion
    1/,2/,3/278th Artillery Regiment
    278th Engineer Battalion
    278th Panzerjäger Battalion
    278th Signals Battalion
    278th Division (Einheiten) Service Units

    It should be marked battalion not KP, but it makes more sense.

    Cheers!

    I was really blind looking at this ID tag It has nothing to do with Füsilier. It comes from Divisions-Feldzeug-Kompanie 278
