; just to start digging it..............................
The Sicherungs-Brigade 74 was set up in Montargis, France, in June 1944. The brigade was established as a pure staff. Its creation was under the military commander in France. The brigade had attached the Sicherungs-Regiment 1000 and theSicherungs-Regiment 1010, as well as the Aufkl. Abt. 1000. The brigade was subordinated to the military commander of France. The brigade was recently deployed at Belfort. The replacement of the brigade table is unknown.
The Sicherungs Regiment 1000 came from Sicherungs Regiment 100 (as February 1944 Sich. Reg. 1000) organized with HQ, two battalions and a Panzerkompanie. Also the 4 and 8 Companies were Fla-Kp (AA).
The Sicherungs-Regiment 1010 was organized in June 1944 with HQ and two battalions.
It seems that Aufkl. Abt. 1000 had a Panzerspäh-Kp.
Its Commander was Kurt (Curt) von Jesser, who led it between June and August 1944, the notorious brigade or Kampfgruppe "Jesser", who had earned himself in the fight against the terror of the Resistance and Maquis. The kampfgruppe consisted of six mobile detachments of Heer (among them 1,200 men under Oberst Georg Coqui, brother-in-law of Wilhelm Fahrmbacher), foreign volunteers of the Wehrmacht (Volga Tatars and Azerbaijani of the East Legions), Mot.-elements (Flak, Reserve Artillery, Panzer , Panzerjäger and Feldgendarmerie) strengthened by Luftwaffe, SS, Sipo and SD.
Kampfgruppe Jesser was composed of:
A rapid column of about 1,200 soldiers under the command of Oberst Georg Coqui (SR 1000), composed of SR 1000 and AA 1000 (Rittmeister Ruby).
A slow column, also of about 1,200 soldiers, with trucks powered with gas (requisitioned), composed of soldiers of Ost Legion (Azerb-Legion 804 under Hauptmann Lange and Wolga-Tatar-Legion under Rittmeister Siknidef.
Elements rapids as 1 Verbindungstab (liaison with a signal Coy); 262. Panzerjäger Kompanie; a Coy of MG vehicles from Paris; 958. Motorisierte Flak Bataillon; 28. Reserve Artillerie Abteilung; 2 aerial squadrons with Stukas and Fieseler Storch operating from Aulnat.
