It is reported that 824 men, under the command of Waffen-Standartenführer Vilis Janums, surrendered to American forces at Güterglück near to the river Elbe.
The Elbe originates in the Krkonoše Mountains of the northern Czech Republic before traversing through much of Bohemia, then into Germany before continuing out into the North Sea at Cuxhaven, 110 km northwest of Hamburg. As I was never sure where I was fighting, could this could have been the river where the wooden bridge with its three great guns stood?

Approximately 4,500 men have surrendered to the Americans south of Schwerin, Germany.
To my knowledge, Latvian Waffen Legions have been split up, scattered all over the place to bolster other units. Some of those soldiers surrendered to the Americans at Güterglück, whilst others fought at the Battle of Berlin and unfortunately had to surrender to the Red Army.
