StuG Abteilung 203 KIA group - Rzhev
by: Bill T
Description: An KIA group to a Leutnant in the well known combat unit Sturmgescgutz Abteilung 203! He earned the GAB and EK2 before being killed.
Werner was Killed during the battles of Rzhev (Rschew), more precisely Operation Mars or Second Rzhev-Sychevka Offensive Operation. The bloody fighting for the area on both sides was soon named "The Rzhev Meat Grinder", and for good reason.
An Excellent Documentary can be seen about where Werner had died here:
Rzhev: General Zhukov's Unknown Battle
* Rare Portrait of Werner in Grey StuG wrap with numbered Leutnant "203" shoulder boards and blank tabs! (postcard sized taken in Berlin)
* KIA Death Card (sterbebild) (more research can be done on the Volksbund site too)
Finding items from StuG Abteilung 203 is uncommon in the first place, nevermind a nice named Portrait w/ numbered shoulderboards and Death Card!!
Tough to let this one go...
