I have compiled this information to help track the movement and deployment of these Tiger units during part of their time with Heeresgruppe Don. The information contained in this documentis meant to supplement the information contained within
Tigers in Combat I
, by WolfgangSchneider. The information will be presented in the original German. If you wish to see the originaldocuments they are available at:http://www.maparchive.ru/index.php/army-groups/50-army-group-don/356-army-group-don-roll-270.html. I will provide image numbers for each entry so you maysee them on the originals for yourself.I could find no information in Kriegstagebuch, Heeresgruppe Don, Anlagen Band 4,covering the dates 15 Dec – 23 Dec 1942. I did search these dates as s.Pz.Abt.503 was sent to theeastern front on 21 Dec 1942, but does not appear in the records of Heeresgruppe Don until 27 Dec1942.Some of the information may repeat as I have included every scrap of information I couldfind in the records. Each entry will be seperated by a double line. The actual documents will be presented only in parts as other parts are not relivant to this study. If some sort of identification for the document is not visible on the image it will be titled. All images will be referenced by thenumbers used on the before mentioned website so the reader may look at them in whole if need be.Any additional information that is found by the reader in these original documents, or if youhave copies of the Kriegstagebuch, Heeresgruppe Don, or any Anlagen to the Kriegstagebuch after the date of 12 Jan, please contact me at:firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to add as muchinformation to this document as possible.
