Anyone have any info on the unit? If it was indeed dug up at Bastogne maybe even a position where the unit was?

Here is some info about the 94 Infantry Regiment:
http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...ter/IR94-R.htm

Seems it was renamed in 1942 as: Grenadier Regiment 94


"The Grenadier Regiment 94 emerged from the Infantry Regiment 94 in the fall of 1942. It was under 32nd Infantry Division . Before the first Kurland battle at the end of October 1944, the Grenadier Regiment 96 at Autz had such great losses that it was used only as a battalion combat group under command of the Grenadier Regiment 94 in the division. On May 8, the regiment went on Hela in Russian captivity."

No mention about Bastogne or the Ardennes...
