1SS Battalion Rink Aachen

Post by GRENFUCHS » Fri Jul 20, 2018 7:31 am

I am new here thank you for the add. I have used the search function here and have found this question asked before with no responses so I figured I would give it another try.

I am seeking the OOB or TO&E for 1SS Batt Rink that went into Aachen. Some refer to it as KG Rink, however I am unsure if this is accurate. Any help would be most appreciated!

I think that you’r meaning: SS-Unterkampfgruppe „Rink“
Unfortunately, I didn’t found the composition of this ‘’Unterkampfgruppe’’, neither in my books or on the web.
SS Battalion Rink, part of Kampfgruppe Diefenthal, attempted to join the defenders but was sidetracked by an attack on Wurselen by the 30th Division
On the 15th, SS Battalion Rink finally entered the town

Maybe it’s Hubert RINK:
