6th Panzer Grenadier Regiment

Post by Peter2 » Thu Apr 27, 2017 8:09 am

Hi I am researching Operation Market Garden. One of my sources refers to being interrogated by men from 6th Panzer Grenadier Regiment. Was this unit ever near Arnhem? It appears to have been part of 7 Panzer Div. I suspect confusion with 9 SS Panzer Div.

Thanks for any help.

The 7th Panzer Division, with PzGr Regiments 6 & 7 was on the Eastern Front during the time of Market Garden. The 9th SS Panzer Division was involved in Market Garden, however its SSPgR's were 19th & 20th.

Thanks Jerry, as I suspected, a case of mistaken identity. All the best.

Maybe a member of PzGrenErsuAusb-Btl.6?
