The Wehrmacht used Roman numerals to identify battalions i.e. I and II etc.
They used numbers to identify the Kompanie, 1 to 4 being I Battalion, 5 to 8 II Battalion, 9 to 12 III Battalion then additional Kompanies 13 onwards for support weapons.
However did they use numbers to identify individual Zug within the Kompanie e.g. 1-Zug, 2-Zug etc. and was a numbering system also used for individual Gruppen within the Zug. If not how were individual Gruppen identified?
I am presuming that for an Infantry Kompanie: 1-Kompanie would contain 1-Zug : Gruppe 1, Gruppe 2, Gruppe 3, Gruppe 4 then 2-Zug : Gruppe 1, Gruppe 2, Gruppe 3, Gruppe 4 and similarly for 3-Zug
Have I got this correct?
