I don't see the LS 13 in that other post regarding troops in the Britanny area. Are these guys falling under a different reporting structure than the Kommandtur?

MAJ Gerhardt(?) Enzinger Oberstabartz
CPT Lummp Stabartz
SSG Curick (also called Cwuck)
I am trying to find out more detail on the guards to flesh out the hospital history for my Father story I am writing. He was an 82nd AB trooper wounded and captured on D-Day and kept at Rennes Military Hospital until he escaped during the bombardment of Rennes on 1 August 44.
