    Default Stalingrad Related Grouping

    Hi all,
    I'm new to this forum but use the same username on various other forums.
    Just thought that for my first post I would share my Stalingrad related citation grouping to a member of Infantry Rgt 577 of 305 Infantry Division. He received the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen, BWB & EK at Stalingrad during the assault on the Barrikady Gun Factory region of the city. If you look at the citation for the Wound Badge in Gold you will notice that he was injured 3 times in a 3 day period during this fighting. The EK citation is signed by Kurt Oppenlander who was replaced as Commander of 305 ID during the fighting.
    Interestingly, as a quirk, you will notice that during the later fighting in Italy he was injured on a rare day - the 29th Feb!

    Welcome to the forum , a very nice grouping to Stalingrad

    Those three wounds during the Barrikady fighting probably got him out of Stalingrad , one of the lucky ones !!

    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

    I've just noticed that he didn't exactly progress much after Stalingrad - he was a Unteroffizier in October 1942 and was still the same in March 1945! I wonder how much the wounds hindered his promotion chances? Unfortunately there was no wehrpass/soldbuch with this grouping so we shall probably never know.
