    You're right, that's what it is:

    1. Kompanie/ Ersatz-Bataillon (der) Infanterie-Regiment Großdeutschland.

    Just because the disc is from the GD doesn't mean the man stayed with them- it's entirely possible that he transferred or after being wounded was reassigned or something like that.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
