Description

Late war Wehrmacht Stug wrap. Italian wool made, with a 1944 model breast eagle. Mint condition. Most likely, the owner just received the wrap from the warehouse and just added the loops for the awards, but for some reason never worn it, since there are absolutely no traces of use on it. Large size: breast volume 100 cm. Sleeve length 66 cm. The lining is made of cotton material, usually used on tropical tunics. Rb Nr. 0/0850/0382 marked. Shoulder straps with slides on which the unit number is a chain-stitched: the 648th heavy artillery Abteilung, which was part of the 20th Panzer Division, as the III Abteilung, of the 92nd armored artillery regiment. All insignia is factory applied, the late pattern collar insignia is composed of subdued pattern woven Eiheitskragenspiegeln- collar patches which are straight machine stitched, the collar tabs are enclosed with red soutache. The lower rear ends of the braid are tucked through holes in the collar and are tied off on the collar's underside

The unit fought on the Eastern Front, on the northern face of the Kursk Bulge, and in battles in central Russia: in Smolensk, Oryol, Pskov, and Bryansk regions, as well as near Bobruisk. In June 1944, as a result of the Red Army offensive, the division stuck in a pocket and despite colossal losses, it managed to breakthrough. Later, as a part of the South Ukraine Army Group, the 20th Panzer Division suffered serious losses, and in November 1944, the remnants of the division were redeployed to East Prussia, a month later to Hungary, where they withdrew to Austria, then to Silesia, where they participated in the battles for Breslau. In April 1945, the division was defeated by the Red Army at Görlitz, and the remains of it driven back to Bohemia, where it ended the war in a pocket near Prague, in May 1945
