Becoming a H.Stu.Art.Brig. had nothing to do with the allocation of StuH. It was just the adding of the 4.(Begl.Gren.) Bttr. that made the difference.
Oops!
You are absolutely right! I took a lapsus!

Thanks again for the splendid infos you gave me!

Thanks again!

Strange but true, the KG Maempel is completely absent in italian sources. I beleive they consider it full part of 298th.
Italian official source doesn't mention KG Maempel, but mentions KG Haempel (sic); they are, evidently, the same group. :D [/quote]
