Hello to all :D; a little story dealing with the 291 ID......................

The Volkhov's Cauldron.

With the III./ IR 506 in the Volkhov's swamps - First Phase.

On Mar 02 1942, the battalion had reached the area of Kamenka, south Lissino and was employed there along the strong points located on the cauldron’s north edge. The Regiment’s Staff followed shortly afterwards being established at Kamenka; at that time only its III./ IR 506, its 13./ IR 506 and weak elements of its 14./ IR 506 were within the unit’s framework.

Hello to all :D; more of it......................

The Volkhov's Cauldron.

With the III./ IR 506 in the Volkhov's swamps - First Phase.

On May 23 1942, following new orders the Regiment should press against the cauldron and destroy the enemy encircled there. On May 24, the III./ IR 506 under Hauptmann Weyel (in charge from 22 May) advanced from the railroad junction north of Jeglino through the swamps up to the wooded land located 6 kilometers behind the enemy’s line.

After carrying out a fast reconnaissance, it was ascertained that the woods was occupied by russian troops, hence the German unit launched its assault immediately taken the Soviet troops by surprise. After that the battalion could take also the railroad bridge on the Joska river (1 kilometer northeast of Dubowik).

Simultaneously, a company under Hauptmann Behlau's command carried out a reconnaissance in force against the enemy supply road Dubowik – Jeglino, detecting strong hostile formations in the woods located between the railway and the road. Others reconnaissances to the south and west accomplished on May 25 1942 reported the same.

On May 26 1942, was seized Dubowik taking advantage of one antitank gun that fired at house by house with piercing ammunition.

Next day, the attack proceeded astride of the railway towards Radofinnikowo. On May 28 1942, the battalion could seize Radofinnikowo as well.
