Stamm-Komp.Gren. Ers.Batl.301 EKM
Nice worn dog tag from a soldier who served in the Stamm Kompanie Grenadier Ersatz Bataillon 301.
The dog tag or 'Erkennungsmarke' shows normal signs of wear. The Infanterie Ersatz Bataillon 301 was formed in August of 1939 in Königsberg. It trained and delivered soldiers for Infanterie Regiment 301 which has a very interesting (fighting)histroy. The regiment was part of the 206.Infanterie-Division. In October 1942 the Infanterie Ersatz Bataillon 301 became Grenadier Ersatz Bataillon 301.
A Stammkompanie was a unit that trained the soldiers. Often the soldiers of this companie were soldiers who had frontline experience, but no longer were 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.
The 'B' on both parts of the tag stands for the soldiers bloodtype.
