    Default Ostvolk 1st Class Silver with swords

    Hello All,
    here is the second of my new additions this week.
    This one is a silver 'type 2' with swords.
    The type two is identified with having a makers stamp '100' (Wachtler and Lange) on the underside of the irregular shaped bottle type pin.
    The hinge is a nice quality barrel type and the hook always has an elongated round ended base.

    This one is a particularly nice addition to my collection as I think the markings on the reverse are contemporary.
    It says K Btl 625
    After a bit of research I have come up with the unit ID as 625 Cossack Battalion.
    This unit I believe served with Army Group Centre from the early 43 era.
    Unless anybody has any other ideas?

    All the best

    Hello Harry,
    I like these orders with or without swords.
    I particularly like the inscription on the back...
    I just need to track down the history of this Battalion to see if it ended up in the 14th Galacian Div.
    All the best
    Doug

    Cool

    I have always had a liking for the Ostvolk medals for some reason and managed early on to find all of them. I have cases for 3 of the 4 1.Kl medals and envelopes for most of the 2. kl medals.
    See my photos in the thread on the gold 1.kl.
