Sorry Jan-Hendrik, but 551.Volksgrenadierdivision units were not in or near Labiau at 16th January 1945. At 16th January were all 551 units by Memel River in or close to Tilsit. The 551. retreat from the Tilsit area began at 20th January. Units from the division reached Labiau area at 23rd and 24th January.

It is not for sure known by me, which troops there were in/near Labiau at 16th January. In the time between 12th and 20th January smaller units from Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS passed Labiau.

Best regards
Ove

Is there anybody who can link a "Pionier-Kompanie 134" to a specific unit? Bernhard was kia in Labiau that day as a member of that unit.
