Hello,

Would anyone have information about the Freiwilligen-Stamm-Division's means of transport and equipment in July 1944? Thanks in advance.

Specifically, were there any Stamm-Division units partly horse-drawn during Operation Treffenfeld in July 1944? Thanks.

Thank you very much, Prosper (from Belgium! :beer: ), but I already know the order of battle of the Freiwilligen-Stamm-Division (see my summary - in French - below from two sources). On behalf of someone who is interested in Operation Treffenfeld (France, July 1944), but does not speak either English or German, I simply wanted to know if some units of this division were partially horse-drawn, which is not indicated on Axis History or in the Lexikon der Wehrmacht. Maybe this person wants to know if the division had artillery...
Thanks anyway !
