Soldbuch 2./Pz.Jäg Abt 277

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I just joined this forum and thought maybe someone in here could help me out with this Soldbuch.

It looks like this guy joined the 2./Pz.Jäg. Abt 277 somewhere in the end of august or beginning of September 1944. The Soldbuch itself lists on page 8 that he received equipment from the Pz.Jäg.Stug.Abt 1574 on Page 8 and an iron Ration issued by Pz.Jäg.Stug.Abt 1277 on Page 14. 

My question is would this guy then be assigned with the Stug unit or was he a normal Panzerjäger? I was wondering as they just entered the term Pz.Jäg.Abt 277 on page 17? 
 

Furthermore does anyone know what kind of Stugs or self propelled guns they used ? 
 

Thanks in advance and best regards

Well then you are into unit histories at platoon level, good luck. I see nothing wrong with what you have posted, to find the detail you want you will need some luck! Perhaps you could look for Feldpost that was for this unit and time or pictures. You could also try the Bundesarchive to see if they have anything? I don't think that there are many people with more info than Lexicon, etc... Good Luck

This might very well be what you are looking for. It looks like that particular Kp was equipped with Hetzers:

 

Panzerjäger-Abteilung 277

 

Courtesy of Sturmpanzer.com you can see that the Gliederung for a Volksgrenadier-Division shows how the Panzerjäger-Btl should be equipped, in this case the 2.Kp should be equipped with 14 assault guns and 16 light MG's.

The signature at the bottom of page 15 & 24 confirm that the Kp-Chef was an Oberleutnant Christiansen as listed on the website I linked previously.
