Nice worn dog tag from a soldier who served in the Stammkompanie Grenadier Ersatz und Ausbildungs Bataillon 213.
The dog tag or 'Erkennungsmarke' shows normal signs of wear. Infanterie Ersatz Bataillon 213 was formed in the September of 1939 and in November 1942 renamed and divided in Grenadier Ersatz Bataillon 6 and Grenadier Ausbildungs Bataillon 6. From the beginning it trained and delivered soldiers for the 73.Infanterie-Division. In April 1943 both units where combined and named Grenadier Ersatz und Ausbildungs Bataillon 213
In 1945 during the 'Ostgoten-bewegung' the bataillon was mobilized as part of Grenadier Ersatz und Ausbildungs Regiment 46. The 'A' on the tag stands for the bloodtype of the soldier.
A Stammkompanie was a kompanie that trained the soldiers. Often the soldier of this kompanie were soldiers who had frontline experience and/or were no longer fully usable at the front due to injuries. Of course this changed later in the war as there was a shortage of soldiers.
