The dog tag or 'Erkennungsmarke' shows normal signs of wear. It belonged to a soldier who served in Stammbatterie Ersatz Abteilung Artillerie Regiment 6. This regiment was formed in 1921 a the 6.(Preußisches) Artillerie-Regiment. In 1935 it was renamed into Artillerie Regiment 6 and was part of the 6.Infanterie-Division. With this division it saw combat during the invasion of Belgium and France. On the 22nd of June 1941 the division and its units participated in the invasion on Russia. It fought in areas like Rshew,Smolensk,Orel,Gomel,Bobruisk and was captured by the Russians in April 1945 in Schlesien.
A Stammbatterie was a unit that trained the soldiers. Often the soldiers of this kompanie were soldiers who had frontline experience and/or where no longer fully usable on the front due to injuries. Of course this changed later in the war and they also where put into action as there was a shortage of (front)soldiers.
