Hello

I've found this:

http://www.dasreich.ca/ssreich_41.html

And although it's for June, it's a starting point. My question is, does anyone have a key for the symbology?

Thank you in advance

Take care and good luck

Jason, check your email, I sent you a scan of the "Reich" TOE which is slightly different than the one on Dan's page. I scaned mine from the 46th Panzer Corps microfilm from the NARA. The main difference is that SS Rgt. 11 only has 2 instead of the 3 battalions shown on the other TOE. Dans website also has the officer list I provided him from the same microfilm.

Michael.. I emailed you!


Robert.. Thank you!!!

Wolfkin... brilliant, thank you!!!


A further question:

How would the Sturmgeschütz Batterie be organized. I'm under the impression it would have 6 Stugs. Would they operate as one unit, or 3 units of 2 vehicles.. or?

Thank you in advance!
Take care and good luck

Hello Michael !

Any chance I could get a copy as well ?

If you can't - no problem - I'll keep on muddling along!

Hello Jason!

In 1941 the Sturmgeschutze Batterie would have seven StuG. It was organized with three troops, each with two StuG, plus one for the StuG Batterie Commander. I hope this helps!

Hi Jason!

Inf. Division SS-Reich's Stug Batt. had 7 stugs organized in three platoons plus a stug for the battery commander.

The battery commander was SS-Hstuf. Günster,
platoon commanders.
I.Zug: SS-Ostuf. Telkamp
II.Zug: SS-Ostuf. Mäder
III.Zug: SS-Ostuf. Kneissl

The battery Stugs were nicknamed: Seydlitz, Schill, Prinz Eugen, York, Lützow, Ziethen, Blücher and Derfflinger.

You can find more info on the battery in Mark Yerger's masterpiece Knights of Steel Vol.2.

Cheers
Marko
