    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

    Hello but I have this in formation,thanks:

    Motorized DivisionThe 16th Motorized Infantry Division, nicknamed Windhund ("Greyhound"), participated in the Balkans campaign in 1941 along with the 16th Panzer Division (see above). It took part in Operation Barbarossa with Army Group South later in the year. It advanced on the Caucasus with elements coming to within 20 miles of Astrakhan in 1942 the most easterly point reached by any German unit during the war. It also participated in the Battle of Stalingrad.
    The 16th Motorized Infantry Division participated in defensive operations after the Soviets broke up the front of the southern sector. In 1943, it was upgraded to the 16th Panzergrenadier Division. This upgraded formation suffered heavily in the continuous retreats and was transferred to France for rest and refitting.

    It was reorganized as the 116th Panzer Division (with the number changed since the 16th Panzer Division was already taken by its sibling), absorbing the 179th Reserve Panzer Division in the process in 1944. This new formation fought in the Battle of Normandy and was almost destroyed in the Falaise Gap.

    It subsequently defended the Siegfried Line at Aachen in an understrength condition. The 116th Panzer Division was withdrawn for refitting and then recommitted, but failed to save the city of Aachen. It later participated in the Battle of Hurtgen Forest then in the Battle of the Bulge, again sustaining heavy casualties. It was caught in the Wesel Pocket, but managed to escape across the Rhine, ultimately surrendering within the Ruhr Pocket in April, 1945

    Not sure where you got that info most of it is correct but not the Stalingrad bit, the 16 ID (Mot ) adavanced deep into the Caucusus in Summer 1942 and earned a famous reputation for it's combat there including it's combat advance towards Astrakhan on the Caspian Sea , until the withdrawal at the end of 1942 from the Caucusus due to the catastrophe at Stalingrad and the threat posed to all the German forces in the Caucusus. The Divison was then involved in a fighting withdrawal ending up in the area of Rostov to prevent the encirclement of the whole Armee Gruppe A , ther last man crossing out of the encirclement at the bridge over the Don at Aksayska on the night of the 7th/8th Feb 1943. A well respected combat Divison but just not at Stalingrad !!

    Hi

    nice parade tunic for a well documented regiment. Congratulations.

    I agree that they didn't take part in the stalingrad debacle but that doesn't take away the history around the tunic.

    cheers
