You will have to say which 5th Company you are looking for, which Regiment/Abteilung did it belong to ?

GD didn't have any "Schützen" units, it had a Panzer-Grenadier Regiment and a Panzer-Fusilier Regiment both of which had a 5th Company as the first "rifle" company in their second battalions.

Sadly you sent a link for the 1940 Infanterie Regiment GD which has no direct connection to your original question about Panzergrenadier DIVISION GD which didn't come into being until 1943. Really you need to sort out which unit and date you're interested in.

Hi,my dad was in the 5th panzer division and was captured by the Soviets
and spent the remainder of the war plus a couple of more years after it was over.
He must have thought he'd already been sent to HELL until the GULAG.
I am still trying to find some info on him with absolutely no success.
Cheers GB.
