Re: Battle of Ecueillé (central France) 25 August 1944

Hello,Philippe. i did'nt know which units were at Ecueillé on the 25th of august 1944, All what I read it was an artillery convoy, maybe that the unit(s) belonged to the "Colonne Elster" but I am not sure at all.

Re: SS Unit Formations And Organization

Apoliges please!!!!
For the SS Rotte you must read between 4 and 5 men, not 8.
I think, but I am not sure that the organization of those units begun in 1923 and was in use till the fall of the III°Reich.

Re: SS Unit Formations And Organization

One SS Rotte = between 4 and 8 men
One SS Schar = Between 5 and 15 men
Normally one SS Schar = 3 SS Rotte.
