There a number of (O) and (M) units mentioned, and some gleiderung of them. In particular, EuA 276 (M).

Sorry if I spell this wrong but I am at work but O is for Ortsfest (stationary) and M is for Motorised...that would be my take on it.

Greetings "Scott" !! :D

You should realize that, during WWII, the Germans used many definitions (Militarily) for such simple things as the letter " M " and " O ". You have chosen to use the most common definition of the "M" as to relate to the word: " motorisiert'.

I would point out to you that other meanings of the simple "M" letter could be:
Magazin
Magenkranke
Major
Mann
Maenner
Mannschaft
Maenover
Marine
Marine Station Nordsee
Mark
Maschine
Maschinist
Maybach
Melder
Messmann
militaer
militaerich
Mine
Mineraloel
mit
Mitglieb
mittel
mittlerer
Moerser
monatlich
motorisiert
Muehle
Munition
Muster

For the letter "O" you have chosen: "Orstfest".

Other meanings of the simple "O" letter could be:
Marine Station Ostsee
oben
ober
Oberkommandierender
Oberkommando
Oberst
Offizier
ohne
Ohrenkranker
Oelstation
oesterreich
Omnibus
Orden
Ordnung
Ordonnanzoffizier
orstfest
orstgebunden
Ort
Osten
Ostprussion
Oststation
oesterreichisch

FWIW: It takes a long time, and much research, to unravel what exactly the context of each German letter/word means in its use during WWII.

Best regards & don't give up hope !!

(O) is for Ohren (ear case) and (M) is for Magen (stomach case) in this instance.

thanks,
