Hello Feldgrauans

I am looking for more information on the SS Polizei Regiment "Bozen", OrBats etc..

Here is what I known

Also known as Suedtyroler Polizei Regimenter (source: Christoph von Hartungen, "Der Schlern" Magazine issue 55, Vienna 1981)
Consisted of mostly German-speaking natives of the region Bolzano (Bozen) in North Italy
There is also a number of Italians, Spaniards, Slovenians in this SS Police Regiment.
A company of the Indische Freiwilligen Legion der SS was attached to it from April-May 1945
One of its company was ambushed by Italian partisan gunmen during a march at Via Rasella, resulting in the Ardeatine massacre 1944

Many thanks for any help
