    Just got this set of a DKG winner and looking for some more info on the unit.

    Here is the info that I was able to get:

    Info from the WW2 Awards


    Name: Tölle, Kurt
    Date of birth: Unknown
    Nationality: German

    Rank: Oberleutnant d.R.
    Unit: 1./Panzer-Regiment 25
    Awarded on: November 26th, 1943

    World War 2 - TLLE, Kurt

    And some info on his place of death

    Kurt Tölle ruht auf der Kriegsgräberstätte in Kauen / Kaunas (LT).
    Grablage: Endgrablage: Block 5 - Unter den Unbekannten
    Bei den Umbettungsarbeiten in seinem ursprünglichen Grablageort konnte er nicht zweifelsfrei identifiziert werden, so dass er als ''unbekannter Soldat'' auf dem Friedhof Kauen / Kaunas bestattet worden ist.
    Nähere Informationen zu diesem Friedhof erhalten Sie hier.
    Name und die persönlichen Daten des Obengenannten sind auch im Gedenkbuch der Kriegsgräberstätte verzeichnet. Sie können gern einen Auszug bei uns bestellen.
    Bitte beachten Sie, dass auf einigen Friedhöfen nicht die aktuelle Version ausliegt, somit kann der Name Ihres Angehörigen darin evtl. noch nicht verzeichnet sein.
    Nachname: Tölle
    Vorname: Kurt
    Dienstgrad: Hauptmann
    Geburtsdatum: 16.02.1917
    Geburtsort: Detmold
    Todes-/Vermisstendatum: 30.07.1944
    Todes-/Vermisstenort: Desyduvchai

    I figured that the 25th regiment was part of the 7th panzer division (please correct me if I am wrong)

    Panzer-Regiment 25 - Lexikon der Wehrmacht

    7. Panzerdivision - Lexikon der Wehrmacht

    So he must have received his award for action in Ukraine (probably in the battles around Zhitomir) and was KIA during the operation Bagration, more precisely during the drive of Chernyakhovsky (3rd Belorussian Front) towards the Riga Golf.

    I was not able to find the reported name of the place where he was KIA (Desyduvchai) and don't have any info on the engagement in this area. Also cannot figure out the inscriptions on the back of the letter. Any help will be much appreciated.

    I can't find Desyduvchai either. The cemetery though appears to be in Lithuania....but i'm sure you've worked that out

    Thank you. Photo collecting is pretty affordable but it is getting mighty competitive on Ebay lately.

    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
