    Default Our Division a year in Russia!

    Guys,

    This must be local to me as it has the crossed horses. I love these unit level items. Looks like they had a busy year!

    Would the book be from the 207th Infantry Division?

    Bob,

    Firstly I don't know mate, as I have not had time yet to research it yet and it is not a book it is just an A3 sheet produced by a mapping unit from the Div, if you can make out the small print at the bottom left?

    What is the crossed horses symbol ? I have seen this on the Agravis Reiffessen or Reiffeisen Markt shops....

    There must be a story... :-)

    Nice book however..... :-)

    Nice item - there is a signpost on the map that mentions Hannover so I would say that is where this particular unit is from.
    There seems to be a handful of units that have crossed horses as a divisional emblem (see the relevant section on ... http://www.wwiidaybyday.com ) but the closest match seems to be 267 Infantry Division... http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...onen/267ID.htm who headed to Moscow via Bobruisk & Vyazma which seems to correlate with the path of the unit on the map.

    Mate,

    I live in Bergen by Belsen, this region is Neidersachen and that crossed horses shows aleigance to the local area. Just have to find the Div. It is not a book see above post.

    Is Hannover near you (or in the same region)?

    I think it is the unit I mentioned previously. 267 ID were raised in Wehrkreis XI which included Hannover, which again correlates with the sign on the map.

    Yes mate, I think is to do with Hanovarian horses being a famous breed?

    Hi Jock and all:
    I have Paul Carells book Der Russlandkrieg. In the back
    it has many of the Wehrmacht Division symbols. The one
    for the 207th S(Wehrkreis II Stettin) is a perfect match
    for the one on the cover of the map.
    Tks,
    Bob
