Dug out in Kurland

Dug out near German bunker, found without soldier. Real trench art, not modern fantasy. Most likely made from 20mm brass FLAK casing. Diameter is 21mm. Found broken in two parts, glued together, can be seen from inside. Great, legendary item for any WW2 collector. Found near Skrunda on last positions of 290. Infanterie Division, it was one of the most awarded divisions of army group North. At that place they were preparing to go to Soviet POW camps. On ring is written 19 NORDFRONT 44, middle section is NORDFRONT between sun and flower. Scroll down to see some better photos.

The 11 Infantrie-Division arrived and was positioned between the 132- and 225 Infantrie-Division to strengthen the defence of these two battleworn divisions. The 12 Panzer-Division was able to close the gap between the 215 and 290 Infantrie-Division and even if this was only recognised as a temporary emergency solution it prevented the Russian of breaking through the main line of defence and ensuring that this line which was pressured at many points stayed intacted . 

The Germans launched some counterattacks in the morning hours of the 22 December to release this pressure on the HKL but all of these saw only limited succes because Russian Artillery, tanks and ground support aircraft prevented in many cases that the Germans could even leave their trenches.
