Infanterie-Regiment 419 KIA location

Post by john999 » 24 Oct 2017 10:10

Hello. I have this Wehrpass, Obergefreiter Leo Georg Stehle, killed on 12.09.41 on eastern front while serving with 4. Kompanie/Infanterie-Regiment 419, of 125. Infanterie-Division. From page 35 i can read that his grave was located near a school but i could not find the town/village.
He is not listed on volksbund. The name of the town seems to be something like Bordjugi? Can anyone help me?

Could it be Kodinzy, if the clerk has used a 'j' instead of an 'i and an 'i' instead of the last 'y'' (so 'Kodjnzi')?
This situation map for 15th Sept 1941 shows a village by that name near the positions of 125. Inf.Div.

The division had during the battle of Kiev 300 KIAs and 1800 WIAs. We can hope that he is still there... in Russia there are many historian amateurs but also many grave robbers.

My guess it would be misspelled Serdjuki - small village on the road from Obolon/Оболонь to Horoshyne/Горошине. It does not exist today.
You can find it eg. on Osteuropa 300K X50 Krementschug map.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

There is a village named Khorishky on the general route that the Division might have taken between Sept. 1 and Oct. 2 based on its positions on those dates.

The name of the location reads clearly "Kordjugi". Compare the letter "g" in the village name and in the next line in "Abgeschlossen, Im Felde, den 24.9.41".
Greg might be correct, it doesn´t happen only once that places were misspelled.
