This is a German soldiers complete dog tag which is for the 8th company of Infantry field training regiment 636 of the Wehrmacht they were part of Army group centre no other history can be found after that. This is a rare zinc made mid to late war production tag this is the complete dog tag it is in nice solid condition for a relic as zinc tags do not do well after being buried but this one with its markings pretty much completely readable but not perfectly clear but better once cleaned it still retains a lot of its original colour but it is dirty and damaged from being buried it has been nicely cleaned and is perfect for display or any collection and a very nice tag from this heavily fought late war eastern front battlefield. The dog tag was recovered from the battlefield on the Seelow Heights in 1945 the opening battle for Berlin. The tag comes from a very large private collection of dog tags recovered some many years ago from all over Europe from most of the fronts fought on by the German Army in World War 2.
Infantry field training regiment 636 dogtag. Field training regiment 636 was part of the 390th training division for Army Group Centre in Russia and was set up on Sept 4th 1942.
This battle is often incorporated into the Battle of the Oder-Neisse. The Seelow Heights was where some of the most bitter fighting in the overall battle took place, but it was only one of several crossing points along the Oder and Neisse rivers where the Soviets attacked. The Battle of the Oder-Neisse was itself only the opening phase of the Battle of Berlin.
The result was the encirclement of the German 9th Army and the Battle of Halbe.
