Reproduction German WWII Demjansk Shield For Heer And Waffen SS- The Demjansk Shield was instituted on April 25th, 1943, to commemorate those troops who fought in the Demjansk pocket during 1942. On February 8th 1942, the Russians encircled the 2nd Army Corp in the small town of Demjansk, located in the northern section of the Russian front about 100 miles north-east of Cholm. Trapped in the pocket were several Heer Infantry Divisions, as well as the 3rd SS “Totenkopf” Division. There were also RAD, Police, Todt organization and other auxiliary units who were trapped that assisted in the battle. Ordered to resist, the garrison was extensively and appropriately supplied by the Luftwaffe.
The shield has a fieldgray wool backing corresponding to the Heer and Waffen SS branches of service is all that we have for now. Die-struck like the originals and complete with wool backing.
