    Default Eastern front infantry album picutres - lots of interesting stuff

    Hi,

    So this bunch of stuff has been in the misc. file at work for a long time. All are from the 1942-3 time frame, noted on the back in many cases, but I can't read the scribble. So do your best. I think some of these units were wiped out at stalingrad. No idea who took them, they were taken fom a German officer by a P-47 pilot in June '45 There are a lot so part one today part two tomorrow or the weekend.
    I hope the front and backs correspond But I don't think so. the 'inline' loader doesn't follow my letter sequence - sorry.

    For whatever reason these will not embed as images, but if you click on them they open as images in a speerate window. Sorry, in the image uploader they show as questions marks witgh no thumbnail preview. Not sure why - some sort of file corruption I guess.

    Some excellent photos here !! The early ones from 1942 to early 1943 show the 260 Infanterie Divison whcih at that time was fighting on the Central sector of the Eastern Front at Spass -Demensk and Mogilew.

    The photos of the General with the RK from the early 1942 photos show Walter Hahm who was commanding the Division during that period , he won the RK on 15/11/1941 whilst commanding IR 480 one of the the Regiments of 260 ID !!

    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

    At some stage the photographer has then served with the 389 ID as the two portrait type phots of the RK's show Lt Willi Rothaar , RK 15/9/44 whilst leading 3 (MG) Kompanie Gren Regt 544 and Oberleutant Hermann Grothaus RK 10/9/44 whilst commanding 11 Batterie Arty Regt 389.

    From the types of photos it is probable that the photographer was an Officer on the Regimental or Divisional Stab or an attached Kriegsberichter.

    At this time 389 ID has been fighting as part of 16th Armee in Latvia . The 389 ID was one of the Stalingrad Divisions and was destroyed in the Kessel !!

    I love the splinter pattern camo cap worn by Rothaar as well !!
