    Is it because lots of these files were destroyed by the allied bombing or did the SS themselves destroyed them before the allies closed in?

    That is a real prize stahlhelm. I am oozing with jealously! Austrian double decal SS! Absolutely amazing that Buhler is written on the liner pad! If ever a helmet was destined to be yours Doug, it is this one.

    The helmet is stamped on the top of the dome B127 with a lot number stamp of 3 or 8 then 6866. Almost an evil helmet lot number!

    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

    I found this HMG War Cabinet resume to the battles in the Slavyansk environs:


    WAR CABINET
    WEEKLY RESUME
    (No. 184)
    of the
    NAVAL, MILITARY AND AIR SITUATION
    from 0700 March 4th, to
    0700 March 11th,
    1943

    The Russo=German Campaign.

    Northern Sector.
    19. The Russians attacked in strength against the German defensive positions south of Staraya Russa and have possibly effected local penetrations.

    Central Sector.
    20. Having captured Rzhev and Gzhatsk the Russians advanced astride the railway Moscow-Vyasma- closely following up the German forces, who
    withdrew under pressure from their exposed positions iii the salient west of Moscow. There is no indication yet where they will stand. Severe frosts have set in at Moscow. This should favour the Russians.

    Orel-Kursk Sector.
    21. Strong Russian offensive operations continued - south of Sukhinichi, where the Russians effected some further penetrations of the German defences. The Russians also attacked along the southern flank of the Orel salient. Further south they have seized Dmitriev, crossed the Bryansk-Kharkov railway, reached the general line Sievsk-Lgov-Sumy, and are pressing on north-westward and westward. ' The Russian offensive operations north and south of Bryansk are apparently aimed at this important railway junction and the pinching out of the Orel salient.

    Kharkov and-Donetz Bend Sector.
    22. The German counter-attacks against the Krasnograd-Slavyansk salient have resulted in its' elimination. There are indications of considerable further exploitation towards Kharkov. Further east the Middle Donetz was reached on a wide front by the Germans, who captured Slavyansk and Lisichansk.

    Local thaw conditions, plus ample and intact railway communications, favoured the Germans, as the Russians were mainly dependent on roads which had been seriously affected by thaw.

    Taman Bridgehead.
    23 Operations in this area have been hampered by thaw. A Russian enveloping movement along the coast of the Sea of Azov* from the north was checked.

    Summary.

    24. The Germans, as a result of the Russian operations as a whole and of their own losses, have been forced to withdraw from their strongly fortified front west of Moscow. Further south the stage is now set for an important advance on Bryansk and the capture of Orel.

    As against this, the heaviest fighting of the past week appears to have taken place in the Middle Donetz area, where the elimination of the Krasnograd- Slavyansk salient represents an important success for the Germans, exploitation of which may threaten the continued retention of Kharkov by the Russians.
