Re: Begleit kompanie

Hello Helmut,

A Divisionsbegleitkompanie is for the protection of the divisonal staff and the vital installations of the Division. On my site you can see the Begleitkompanie for a Panzerdivision.

Re: Numbering of Kompanie, Zug and Gruppe

Hello Alan,

Re: Luftwaffe Report

Hello,

Bombs were dropped in "groups" - which means the leader of the attack orders how many bombs in a row have to be unloaded above which target.
The sentence "15 Gruppen im Ziel" means that 15 groups/bomb loads hit the target area.

Re: Service records 2. SS-Division

Hello,

Such a thing like a "service record" does just exist for officers from either NARA or BA.
To get a summary of the personal files you have to contact Deutsche Dienststelle WAST and fill out an form where you ask for the informations.

Re: Kpen.

Hello Gary,

The second is basically correct except that "Kampfstaffel" are the fighting elements of a unit and not the command elements.
