19 Pz in Russia.

9. Advance from the Düna River.

The Russians understood the importance that this bridgehead had for the Germans and at dawn of the sunny day on July 05 of 1941 the Soviets attacked jumping off from the wooded zone located due south of Zielki.

Meanwhile on July 09 of 1941, the 86 ID and the 206 ID, reached the height of the Pz Division and relieved it; therefore the 19 Pz continued its advance on Newel. To the left moved the 14 ID (Mot). In the following days it continued the advance on Newel with a vanguard under orders of the Brigade’s Commander and reinforced by the I./PR 27.

On July 10 of 1941, the infantry’s relieve continued without pause. The logistic train extended between Vilnius and Dzisna.

Hallo everyone!
Raul, is this really a light AA gun (Flak 36 of 37 mm)?
For me it looks more, as an old Flak officer as I am, more like BSW 20 mm (Gustloff).
I may be wrong but...
With best
Juha :?

Hello to all :D; a little more about this Division...................

19 Pz in Russia.

11. On the Dryssa - 13 of July of 1941.

The rupture of the line of Stalin, resulted in the adoption of new measures. Resistant fortifications and well organized defensive positions in the field had to be silenced by the regiment (SR 74) on July 13 of 1941. After leaving Borkowitschi as the capital of the defensive battles around the bridgehead of Dzisna, it was resumed the attack against the Dryssa River. This attack turned out to be a supreme profit for the regiment, which obtained a greater recognition and praise on behalf of its higher commands.

The zone of action for the attack limited to the right with the 86 ID of the XXIII AK and to the left with the 14 ID (Mot). The march continued through a dense forest of about 10 kilometers of depth to the Dryssa River, whose bridge already had been flown. The water obstacle (Dryssa River) was reached and crossed on July 13 of 1941.

Hello to all :D; a little more about this Division...................

19 Pz in Russia.

12. Towards Dretun.

On July 14 of 1941, in the morning the 19 Pz was moving towards Dretun with its SR 73 in the lead, along the route Dretun - Litwino - Schemiaty - Newel.

The II. /SR 74 was directed to protect the flank the division and had to reject several massive attacks of the encircled up Russian troops in Poloszk whom seemingly looked for to open its way to the east. Nevertheless, this enemy intentions had been frustrated by the heroic fight of the soldiers of the battalion. In these fights, a Russian armored train was destroyed.

The advance continued towards Newel during the night from 15 to 16 of July of 1941. The armored regiment (PR 27) of the division had been detached as vanguard and it was sent towards the city. The SR 74 arrived that same day (16 of July) at Newel with one of its battalions (the II. Battalion) and attacked due south of the city towards the lake of Kassenkowo, a town which would be familiar for the regiment.

In front of Schemiaty, the vanguard hit against well entrenched enemy troops.
