SS infantry reserve battalions "Ost"

Post by lustrum » Thu Oct 14, 2010 10:23 am

Hi guys

I recently read a document that requested four, (4) former SS men from a concentration camp to go to the SS infantry reserve battalions "Ost" in Zhitomir, before transferring on to the Dirlewanger formation.
The letter is dated; 02.10.1943 from Dirlewanger, (BA RS 3-36/10, page 107)

Anyone have more information on these transfers of SS convicts to the "Ost" battalion or if the "Ost" battalion regulary trained probationers?

Thanks for any help

stuart :?
